This paper presents a mathematical model of solute transport in a soil with account for nonisothermal moisture transfer. The model is based on the equations of convective diffusion, sorption kinetics, and two-phase filtration, on the isotherms of water sorption by the soil, and on the thermodynamic laws. A numerical analysis of the influence of various physical mechanisms on the process of mass transfer in the soil has been performed.
