A mathematical model for a one-dimensional convective-dispersive solute transport in a soil matrix is presented. The interplay of linear equilibrium sorption and first order degradation were incorporated into the formulation of the model. The model took into consideration the overall effects of the solid and liquid phase mass transfer resistances. Data from experiments were analysed using the temporal moments method (MOM) and CXTFIT curve-fitting technique. The functional parameters; dispersion… Expand

Application of the method of temporal moments to interpret solute transport with sorption and degradation.
TLDR
The method of temporal moment (MOM) formulae was applied to analyse breakthrough data from a laboratory column study of atrazine, hexazinone and rhodamine WT transport in volcanic pumice sand, as well as experimental data from the literature, finding that the MOM fitted breakthrough curves with tailing better than curve fitting.

Bioavailability of Hydrophobic Organic Contaminants: Effects and Implications of Sorption‐Related Mass Transfer on Bioremediation
The low bioavailability of hydrophobic organic compounds (HOCs) is one of the key sources of uncertainty in the implementation of in situ bioremediation. Bioavailability of HOCs in the subsurface isExpand
Biodegradation kinetics of aromatic hydrocarbon mixtures by pure and mixed bacterial cultures.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the simple models do not accurately predict the outcome of these biodegradation experiments, and the development of a new model for substrate mixtures, the sum kinetics with interaction parameters (SKIP) model is described. Expand
Moment analysis to estimate degradation rate constants from leaching experiments
First-order degradation rate constants (y) are often estimated from the results of solute leaching experiments by using curve-fitting procedures. However, uniquaress problems can make curve-fiting aExpand
Modeling substrate interactions during the biodegradation of mixtures of toluene and phenol by Burkholderia species JS150.
TLDR
Of the kinetic models tested, one developed for microbial degradation of multiple substrates was able to describe substrate interactions and to model the mixture utilization by strain JS150, but simple competitive, noncompetitive, or uncompetitive substrate kinetics were not sufficient to describe the observed inhibitory interactions.

Use of a two-phase partitioning bioreactor for degrading polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons by a Sphingomonas sp.
TLDR
Degradation rates achieved using the TPPB and S. aromaticivorans B0695 are much greater than any others previously reported for an ex situ PAH biodegradation system operating with a single species. Expand

TLDR
This study shows that specific bacterial phylotypes are associated both with different phases of PAH degradation and with nutrient addition in a preadapted PAH-contaminated soil. Expand

TLDR
The slow-release fertilizer Osmocote (Os) is recommended as an effective nutrient amendment for intrinsic biodegradation of PAHs in oil-contaminated beach sediments. Expand
Combined effects of contaminant desorption and toxicity on risk from PAH contaminated sediments.
TLDR
The results suggest that BAP may be an excellent indexing compound for gauging relative exposure risk across sediments, and the integrated RRI approach may enable regulators to more accurately gauge relative risks and make more informed sediment management decisions. Expand
