Fate Of Contaminants In Groundwater

When a contaminant is introduced in the subsurface environment, its fate and concentration are controlled by a variety of physical, chemical, and biochemical processes that occur between the contaminant and the constituents of the subsurface environment. A complete discussion and assessment of all these processes for all contaminants are beyond the scope of this chapter. However, this section illustrates some of the most important processes for several groups of contaminants and the impact of these processes on the concentration and mobility of contaminants.
