Description of Research
Dr. Cannon's research interest is in the transport of hazardous organics in soil. One significant factor affecting the increase in ground water contamination is the growing use of synthetic organic chemicals and their improper disposal in soil systems. The design and assessment of soil clean-up alternatives is a major challenge for engineers and scientists. Dr. Cannon's work uses mathematical modeling and numerical computations to evaluate data from other in-house studies and to extend the data predictively. His goal is to construct simplified but meaningful mathematical representations of the physical system that preserve significant chemical and biological phenomena operating within the system.
