A Two-Phase Model for the Miscible Displacement of Reactive Solutes in Soils1

  1. J. Skopp and
  2. A. W. Warrick2



Miscible displacement is studied by considering the flow regime to be composed of separate mobile and stationary phases. Solute transfer through the mobile phase occurs only by convection, whereas adsorption or reaction by the soil matrix is diffusion limited and occurs normal to the mobile-stationary interface. The model is unique in that a specific rate law is not assumed, but the solution is exact. Results are presented graphically as a function of two parameters which are compared with experimental results of other workers. The displacement of calcium by magnesium was more closely in agreement with theoretical predictions than was adsorption of picloram.
