Contaminant Sorption and Transport by Suspended Particles with Runoff

  • Vyacheslav G. Rumynin
Part of the Theory and Applications of Transport in Porous Media book series (TATP, volume 26)


The description of near-surface migration of absorbable chemicals requires more rigorous problem formulation, taking into account erosion phenomena, which always accompany runoff formation. Mobile fine material, which is a product of soil erosion, becomes an active transporter of components adsorbed on the surface of suspended particles. An analogy with the subsurface colloid-facilitated contaminant transport (Rumynin 2011) is appropriate here.
