Course Description:

This course will provide an overview of the SESOIL and AT123D models in the SEVIEW 7.1 transport and fate modeling software, developed by the instructor. SESOIL and AT123D were used by the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) to develop MCP default soil cleanup objectives. For more information, visit

Course participants are not expected to download the program for use in the course; use of the software will be demonstrated by the instructor.

To ensure adequate protection of groundwater quality throughout the state, the MCP’s default soil cleanup objectives are extremely conservative. Environmental consultants can use SESOIL and AT123D to develop site-specific soil cleanup objectives based on site properties. For most locations this will result in higher soil cleanup concentrations while maintaining protection of groundwater quality. In other cases modeling may indicate that a serious threat to groundwater exists. The SEVIEW software is used by regulatory agencies and consultants throughout the world, including the MassDEP.

The first half of the course will cover SESOIL and vadose zone modeling, including setting up SESOIL with climatic, chemical, soil, and application parameters; running the model, and interpreting the results. The development of site-specific cleanup objectives will be discussed as well.

The second half of the course will cover linking SESOIL to the AT123D groundwater model.

Throughout the course the instructor will demonstrate the software; participants will not be expected to download it for their own use in the course.
