Why Temperature Monitoring Works!

Speaker:       Bryan Tallant



Temperature monitoring is a technique originally used in the 1970’s & 80’s in environmental work, but its use goes back much farther in water resources applications. Although it received little attention for some time since these early efforts, interest in temperature monitoring has increased sharply in the past few years. Come find out why it is gaining momentum, and what temperature monitoring can be used to reveal.

This presentation will be brief general overview of temperature monitoring. The presenter will cover some of the basics of why temperature monitoring works, several ways of applying temperature monitoring, and share some actual examples of applications.


Bryan Tallant, Senior Hydrogeologist, B.S. Geology, M.S. Geology (Geochemistry)
Mr. Tallant is an experienced hydrogeologist and geochemist. With over fifteen years’ experience in the petroleum industry, Mr. Tallant’s specific technical experience includes: visualizations using GIS, and 3-D modeling; database design, implementation and programming; environmental evaluation and development of Site Conceptual Models for petroleum-impacted sites; and hydrologic modeling using a variety of methods and programs. Mr. Tallant has provided on-going, in-house technical support to a major oil company’s remediation and engineering technology group. This group is responsible for ensuring that technology used on impacted sites is optimized in light of underlying geologic and geo-hydrologic conditions as well as applicable environmental clean-up guidelines and regulations. He has provided technical advice to case managers in the group relative to site conditions, researched historic and potential sources of on- and off-site contamination, participated in projects to optimize the use and performance of various remediation systems, prepared technical seminars for internal and external groups, contributed to technology development projects, and participated in advocacy with regulatory agencies. Mr. Tallant is co-inventor of our ThermalSnake® temperature monitors and has performed research on temperature monitoring of biodegradation for over ten years. Mr. Tallant is a member of the Association for Environmental Health and Sciences and the National Groundwater Association.
