Abstract

Organic chemical wastes spilled, buried or otherwise placed on land are subject to a high degree of mobilization and can enter the air or groundwater. Estimation of transport rates requires specification of the deviation from equilibrium of the natural system with respect to the chemical wastes. Because of this, estimation of the equilibrium partitioning of the wastes between the various phases (i. e. , liquid, solid, soil aqueous) is a necessary prerequisite to modeling of the transport processes. This paper is designed to review and summarize the equilibrium estimation procedures that are currently available and, where possible, indicate the uncertainty or identify the most accurate of these procedures.
