Book: Physical and Chemical Processes of Water and Solute Transport/Retention in Soils, SSSA Special Publication 56, 2001
Published by: Soil Science Society of America


Transport and retention of water, nutrients, and inorganic and organic contaminants in the environment is greatly affected by physical and chemical processes in porous media such as soils. To definitively understand these processes, multiple scales, from the landscape to the molecular, must be investigated. Topics include fractal and spatial heterogeneity, molecular models, in situ spectroscopic and microscopic techniques, and inclusion of time-dependent phenomena in predicting solute transport/retention in soils.
