Newtown, CT (PRWEB) October 05, 2011
Advanced Tools (http://www.advancedtools.us), the comprehensive website that tracks and analyzes new analytical and field-based tools for In-Situ Green Remediation, announced the launch of the Advanced Tools Blog. The blog will be a daily source of cutting-edge information and commentary on new technologies and tools. Hosted by Aaron Peacock, PhD, the AT blog will also feature a diverse group of guest bloggers as well as a discussion forum.
Advanced Tool’s new blog and forum goes above and beyond other informational resources currently available by providing expert opinions and viewpoint regarding new technologies. Additionally, the forum allows group members to pose topics and discussions, creating a helpful place for professionals to ask questions and discuss important topics related to Advanced Tools.
“I’m incredibly excited about hosting the new Advanced Tools blog,” says Aaron Peacock. “To be on the ground level, working with a website bringing these new technologies to light is a wonderful opportunity. With the addition of the blog and forum, I’m sure that many professionals will find the Advanced Tools website an invaluable resource.”
Advanced Tools launching a new blog and online forum comes as no surprise to many, as the website has already been utilizing digital technologies available for some time, as well as providing informative and educational materials. Workshops, webinars, recorded videos and online papers from leading experts in the field of advanced tools can all be found and accessed from the main website, http://www.advancedtools.us.
“With this new blog and forum, Advanced Tools has become an even more interactive and valuable resource for people looking to learn more about new technologies for In-Situ Green Remediation,” says Michael Taylor of Advanced Tools. “We expect the blog and forum to be quite popular. Advanced Tools already has a number of extraordinary guest bloggers planned. And with the forum allowing users to discuss these tools in an open setting, we’re offering a whole new way of exploring advanced tools.”

About Aaron Peacock
Dr. Aaron Peacock is an environmental scientist specializing biotechnology and its application to address complex environmental issues. Dr. Peacock has 15 years of experience in academia and industry, and is on the forefront of the development of new technologies for bacterial identification and measurement to support site investigation and the evaluation and implementation of monitored natural attenuation (MNA) and enhanced bioremediation.
Dr. Peacock's current focus has been on the use and development of molecular biological tools (MBTs) to aid in the evaluation of sites for in-situ bioremediation potential, performance monitoring of ongoing bioremediation programs, and forensics of non-performing sites. In addition to his work with MBTs, Dr. Peacock has co-developed novel in-situ tools for the characterization and assessment of contaminated sites. Some examples of these tools include the Bio-trap sampling device and in-situ sediment incubator (ISI).
Dr. Peacock's work experience also includes conducting research for the Department of Energy's (DOE) Environmental Remediation Science Program (ERSP). The objective of the current research is to gain a comprehensive and mechanistic understanding of the microbial factors and associated geochemistry controlling metal and radionuclide mobility so that DOE can confidently remediate these plumes as well as support stewardship of metal and radionuclide-contaminated sites. The approach specifically targets new knowledge that can be translated into scientifically defensible flow and reactive transport process models of microbially mediated and abiotic reactions, taking a major step toward ERSP's long-term goal to "incorporate coupled biological, chemical and physical processes into decision making for environmental remediation."
