At the request of Assistant Secretaries Triay and Markowsky a 2-day workshop was held September 1-2, 2010 to investigate collaborations and complimentary actions between ASCEM and the Department of Energy's Fossil Energy’s National Risk Assessment Program (NRAP) programs. Both efforts are designed to use best-in-class computational methods to integrate theory and experimental observation for the advancement of science-based risk assessment methodologies. Both programs seek to uncover the most important knowledge gaps associated with the long-term fate and transport of chemical species in the natural environment, specifically subsurface transport. Both programs focus research and development efforts by improving computational models and quantifying uncertainties. In addition, both programs have adopted a “common architecture at many sites” paradigm promoting standardization of software, methods, and approaches.

Given the programs' similarities, the workshop examined the commonalities and differences that emerge in two distinct application areas: groundwater and soils remediation and geologic sequestration of carbon dioxide. For each discussion area, ASCEM and NRAP participants summarized their program's current goals and approaches, compared and contrasted approaches, and identified initiatives in each program that could be leveraged by the other to maximize efficiencies and promote common methodologies.
