Contaminant Transport

Mechanisms and Principles

BASIC DEFINITIONS

Ground surface

unsaturated zone

ground

surface

(BGS)

Capillary fringe

Water table Water-table, phreatic,

Saturated zone or unconfined aquifer

Confining bed

Confined aquifer or

artesian aquifer

Capillary fringe may be >200 cm in fine silt

In capillary fringe water is nearly saturated, but held in tension in soil pores

MICRO VIEW OF UNSATURATED ZONE

Contaminant concentrations:

concentration in water

air

Cg, mg/L or ppmv

concentration in gas

solid

Cs, gm/kg

concentration in solids

PARTITIONING RELATIONSHIPS

Cs mg/kg solid

Solid ↔ water = Kd =

Cw mg/L water

Kd = partition coefficient

=H= 3

Cw mg/m water

H = Henry’s Law constant

HENRY’S LAW CONSTANT

H’ is dimensionless

H’ = H/RT

R = gas constant = 8.20575 x 10-5 atm m3/mol °K

T = temperature in °K

NOTE ON SOIL GAS CONCENTRATION

ppmv = parts per million by volume

Cg (ppmv) =

molecular weight g/mole

VOLUME REPRESENTATION

Gas volume, Vg

Void volume, VV

Water volume, VW

Total volume, VT

Solid volume, VS

VOLUME-RELATED PROPERTIES

Bulk density = ρb = mass of solids

total volume

Porosity = n = θ = VV/VT

Volumetric water content or

water-filled porosity = θW = VW/VT

Saturation = S = VW/VV

Gas-filled porosity = θg (or θa) = Vg/VT

θW + θg = n

CONTAMINANT CONCENTRATION

IN SOIL

CT = ρb Cs + θw CW + θg Cg

CT = ρb Cs + n CW

NOMENCLATURE FOR DARCY’S LAW

Q = KiA

K = hydraulic conductivity

i = hydraulic gradient = dh/dL

A = cross-sectional area

Velocity of ground-water movement

u = Q / n A = q / n = K i / n = average linear velocity

n A = area through which ground water flows

q = Q / A = Darcy seepage velocity = Specific discharge

For transport, n is ne, effective porosity
