BIOPLUME II simulates the transport of dissolved hydrocarbons under the influence of oxygen limited biodegradation as well as the reaeration and anaerobic biodegradation as a first order in hydrocarbon concentration. BIOPLUME II solves the solute transport equation twice: once for hydrocarbon and once for oxygen. As a result, two plumes are computed at every time step. The model assumes an instantaneous reaction between oxygen and hydrocarbon to simulate biodegradation processes. The two plumes are combined using the principle of superposition. The model is extremely versatile in that it can be used to simulate natural biodegradation processes, retarded plumes, and in-situ biorestoration schemes. Software Description: The program is written in Fortran programming language for implementation on IBM-PC/AT and compatible machines using DOS 2.X or higher operating system. Minimum of 550K bytes of memory required. Note: MS Fortran 4.01 required.
