Ecosystems Research

Said H. Hilal

My research involves developing and applying mathematical models to estimate the environmental fate of organic chemicals,using the computer model, SPARC.  During the period 2002 to 2006, my work focused on refinement of the SPARC physical and chemical properties models and extension of these models to hydrolytic and redox processes.
