Geochemical Studies

Since its founding in 1979, SSP&A has pioneered the application of geochemistry to the field of hydrogeology.

We provide expert services in geochemistry for environmental problems associated with:

  • Hazardous waste disposal;
  • Chemical and petroleum manufacturing;
  • Wood treatment;
  • Coal gasification;
  • Mining and acid mine drainage;
  • Saltwater intrusions;
  • Surface-water and sediment contamination.

Services that we offer for Geochemistry

SSP&A's team of geochemists are recognized experts in the field of environmental forensics, and provide services associated with:

  • Evaluation of the origin(s), fate, and transport of contaminants;
  • Geochemical and isotopic fingerprinting;
  • Analysis of environmental problems caused by the presence of compounds such as: PCBs, PCPs, creosotes, perchlorate, nitrate, MTBE, BTEX, arsenic, mercury, lead, and chlorinated and non-chlorinated solvents;
  • Interpretation of chemical congeners (PCBs, Dioxins);
  • Chronological evaluations;
  • Analysis of organic / inorganic interactions;
  • Evaluation of geochemical conditions;
  • Evaluation of DNAPL and LNAPL sites;
  • Assessment of the natural and enhanced attenuation of contaminants;
  • Geochemical modeling;
  • Litigation support.
