An understanding of gas transport in unsaturated media is important for evaluation of soil aeration or movement of O 2 from the atmosphere to the soil. Soil aeration is critical for plant root growth because roots generally cannot get enough O 2 from leaves. Evaluation of gas movement is also important for estimating transport of volatile and semivolatile(More)
Recent research has shown that planting deep-rooted trees, such as poplar, can take up and degrade important ground water pollutants such as trichloroethylene (TCE) as they transpire water from the capillary fringe of shallow contaminated aquifers. The effect of hydrogeologic factors on the minimum plantation area needed to prevent downgradient migration of(More)
