Dr. David Arcos has over 20 years of experience in the areas of geochemistry, mineral deposits, nuclear and industrial waste management, industrial site geochemistry and engineered barriers, migration and retention of pollutants (metals and radioactive elements), computational modeling of natural systems’ geochemical and hydrogeological behavior, engineering barriers and mining sites.
He specializes in developing conceptual and numerical hydrogeochemical models, both in the field of mining and nuclear waste management. He has participated in various mining projects in South America and the Caribbean, on issues of feasibility, environmental impact assessment, management, closure and remediation, as well as projects in radioactive waste management for the European Commission and the majority of European agencies and Japan. He has also participated in various R & D projects in the European Union for the past 15 years.
In addition, Dr. David Arcos has authored and co-authored more than 30 publications in scientific journals, as well as a large number of abstracts presented at conferences. These publications address aspects such as geochemistry, modeling, radioactive waste management and environmental protection.
