A coupled model for Transport of Pollutants in the Environment


The goals of the model are:

  • familiarizing with contaminant transport processes in rivers,  vadose zone and aquifers;
  • "demystification" of mathematical procedures for evaluating the transport of contaminants in rivers, vadose zones and aquifers;
  • use of a database to couple the migration of a contaminant from the unsaturated zone  through the phreatic aquifer and along a river in hydraulic communication with the aquifer.
