Abstract or Summary
  • A mathematical model was developed using finite difference numerical techniques to examine the effects of kinetic parameters on the fate of hydrophobic organic compounds in soil systems. The model included advection; dispersion; bacterial metabolism; and sorption and desorption to soil solids and bacteria, and degradation by bacteria. The most important processes governing the eventual fate of organic compounds were surface sorption and degradation by soil bacteria. It was concluded that future research should be focused in these areas.
