Migration of Organic Fluids Immiscible with Water in the Unsaturated Zone

  • F. Schwille
Part of the Ecological Studies book series (ECOLSTUD, volume 47)

Abstract

In systemizing fluids potentially harmful to groundwater with regard to their migration behaviour, it has been proven useful in groundwater hydrology to divide these into two main groups
$$\text{miscrible}\,\text{with}\,\text{water - immiscible}\,\text{with}\,\text{water}$$
based on fluid dynamics. This division is indispensable since the simultaneous flow of two (or more) immiscible fluids gives a completely different migration pattern than that of the simultaneous flow of fluids miscible with one another. Accordingly, one must fundamentally differentiate between the two types of flow
$$\text{one phase flow - two (multi - ) phase flow}\text{.}$$
