Expertise includes sources, transport and fate of multimedia environmental contaminants and the assessment and
remediation of contaminated sites. Studies have involved a wide range of scales and methods, including benchscale,
pilot, and field experiments, and computer modeling. Primary current interest is the assessment and
remediation of contaminated sediments. Dr. Reible has served as PI on projects totaling in excess of $20 million
and has authored/edited 4 books, more than 20 chapters in books, and more than 80 refereed journal papers.
