Modeling of contaminant transport through soil to groundwater to a receptor requires that consideration be given to the many processes which control the transport and fate of chemical constituents in the subsurface environment. These processes include volatilization, degradation, sorption and multiphase partitioning, leaching, advection and dispersion. Mathematical models for simulation of these processes may require significant data inputs. The paper reviews the important factors involved in modeling of subsurface transport as well as the data requirements and uncertainties. An application of a hydro-carbon spill screening model is presented.
