Abstract

An analytical solution in closed form of the advection-dispersion equation in one-dimensional contaminated soils is proposed in this paper. This is valid for non-conservative solutes with first order reaction, linear equilibrium sorption, and a time-dependent Robin boundary condition. The Robin boundary condition is expressed as a combined production-decay function representing a realistic description of the source release phenomena in time. The proposed model is particularly useful to describe sources as the contaminant release due to the failure in underground tanks or pipelines, Non Aqueous Phase Liquid pools, or radioactive decay series. The developed analytical model tends towards the known analytical solutions for particular values of the rate constants.
