Dr. Charles Kreitler has conducted ground-water investigations in Texas and the southwestern United Stated for more than 40 years. His experience includes water resource investigations of sandstone and limestone, fault activation in the Texas Coastal Zone and site characterization for both high-level and low-level nuclear waste disposal sites in salt domes, evaporates and thick unsaturated sections in arid settings. Dr. Kreitler has worked on problems associated with injection of brines from the petroleum industry and hazardous wastes from the chemical industry. He has conducted detailed characterization of contaminant sites in both porous media and fractured bedrock and has written books and monographs on geochemistry of brine contamination, wellhead protection and ground-water flow through heterogeneous sandstones.
Dr. Kreitler has been the author of more than 100 technical articles and contract reports. He currently teaches a class in groundwater resource evaluation in the Energy and Earth Resources Graduate Program in the Jackson School of geoscience, The University of Texas at Austin. His talks for this lecture series are based on materials from his course.
