Contaminant Transport

The contaminant transport portion of the Internet Modeling Course consists of modules which

  • introduce concepts of contaminant transport,
  • show how these concepts are put in modeling framework, and
  • give advanced/optional information on certain phenomena.

Contaminant Transport Concepts

A number of physical, chemical, and biological processes affect contaminant transport. These processes are introduced from a conceptual point of view. Illustrations of some processes are provided by animations.

Physical Model Experiments
Physical model experiments are used to illustrate NAPL distributions for a variety of situations.
