Critical Review of PFAS Fate and Transport: Finding Paths Through the Fog of Uncertainty
Mahsa Shayan1, John Molson2, Reuben Dandurand1 1AECOM 2Université Laval
The objective of this presentation is to share a critical review of existing PFAS modelling work to identify some important knowledge gaps and modeling challenges related to parameters and processes which control PFAS fate and transport. To gain most benefit from modeling, we will show that the conceptual model must be well defined and justified and that uncertainties must be considered
