Abstract To assess the minimal protection that soil can be expected to provide ground water, transport and fate of 13 organic pollutants were studied in a sandy soil with low organic matter content (0.087% organic C). Glass columns were packed with soil to a depth of 140 cm in a manner that preserved to the maximum extent possible the characteristics of the original soil profile. Columns received 14 cm/day of water containing a mixture of approximately 1.0 or 0.2 mg/liter of each of the organic compounds. Quantities of compounds that volatilized from the soil surface were measured, as well as concentrations in the column effluent. A simple mathematical model based on water solubility of the compound and the organic C content of the soil predicted the retardation factors of the pollutants within a factor of three.
