The MULTIMED computer model simulates the transport and transformation of contaminants released from a hazardous waste disposal facility into the multimedia environment. Release to air and soil, including the unsaturated and saturated zones, and possible interception of the subsurface contaminant plume by a surface stream is represented by the model. The model further simulates contaminant movement through the air, soil, groundwater, and surface water media to humans and other potentially affected species. MULTIMED is intended for general exposure and risk assessments of waste facilities and for analyses of the impacts of management and engineering controls. The report provides the conceptual and theoretical details of the various modules and the Monte Carlo simulation technique.
