A predictive model of cation transport in soils undergoing miscible displacement was developed and tested. A mass balance equation was formulated to include a general nonlinear cation exchange function. The model was applied to the transport of cations through an exchanger using five types of exchange functions. The model was further tested by conducting soil column studies which involved both homovalent and heterovalent exchange. Good agreement between experimental and predicted data was obtained. Laboratory studies were also conducted to assess the affect of Mg(+2) ion on the solubility of calcareous materials. Solubility was found to vary with the surface area and mineralogy of the carbonate material, and the degree of saturation of the water with respect to a given carbonate mineral. The presence of Mg(+2) decreased the solubility of dolomite in waters which were near saturation with respect to dolomite.
