Abstract
Predicting subsurface contaminant transport and transformation requires mathematical models based on a variety of physical, chemical, and biological processes. The mathematical model is an attempt to quantitatively describe observed processes in order to permit systematic forecasting of cause and response relationships. The mathematical models and the computer codes which solve the differential equations are approximations of the systems being described. The validity of these approximations depends on the purposes of the calculation. The report describes several mass transport processes but does not attempt to describe transformation processes. The body of the report focuses on considerations for model implementation and the validity of the implementation.
