Analysis of solute transport in ground-water systems involves a complex, multi-discipline study that requires intensive and costly investigation. This report examines the physical mechanisms of solute transport, advection and dispersion, and explains how they relate to one another and the scale of study.
A step-by-step framework for conducting a study of the physical mechanisms is given that encourages the use of simulation to help understand the ground-water system under study. This framework is intended to aid both first-time project leaders of solute-transport studies who already have considerable experience in ground-water flow studies and technically oriented administrators .
