Abstract

In this review, papers considering fate and transport processes in groundwater systems are discussed first. The fate and transport process papers are divided among saturated systems, vadoze zone systems and systems containing nonaqueous phase liquids (NAPLs). Within these categories, subdivisions are made between physical, chemical, or biological processes such as hydrodynamics, sorption-desorption, chemical reactions and biodegradation. Next, papers concerning groundwater quality monitoring and groundwater remediation are divided among various techniques or specific phases. Papers that are concerned with general field studies of fate and transport are ordered by compounds or source classification. Lastly, papers describing risk assessment and groundwater protection are discussed.
