Environmental modeling is a core specialty of Anchor QEA. Our scientists and engineers have developed and applied a wide range of modeling tools, from simple spreadsheet-based models to extremely complex models of multiphase systems, each with the purpose of better informing critical risk management and remedial decision-making processes. Key models to address chemical fate, transport, food web, and bioaccumulation are used to understand and predict current and future site conditions. Anchor QEA has also developed and applied high-resolution, 3D hydrodynamic, wave, and sediment transport models to directly simulate erosion, deposition, sediment transport, the effect of wind waves, and the resulting feedback on morphology. These detailed models allow refinement of project designs and can optimize the layout and configuration of capping, sediment removal, and bank stabilization actions, to improve the overall cost efficiencies of cleanup remedies.
