Now in its second edition, this book provides the underlying theoretical concepts and the applied aspects of contaminant transport modeling. It covers the basic principles, including the theories behind solute transport in groundwater, common numerical techniques for solving transport equations, and step-by-step guidance on the development and use of field-scale modeling.
