Variably Saturated Flow and Transport — Sorbing Solute

Application ID: 490

In this example water ponded in a ring on the ground moves into a relatively dry soil column and carries a chemical with it. As it moves through the variably saturated soil column, the chemical attaches to solid particles, slowing the solute transport relative to the water. Additionally the chemical concentrations decay from biodegradation in both the liquid and the solid phase.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
