Soil Gas Movement in Unsaturated Systems

  title={Soil Gas Movement in Unsaturated Systems},
  author={Bridget R. Scanlon and Jean Phillippe Nicot and Joel W. Massmann},
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 organic compounds from contaminated sites through the unsaturated zone to the groundwater. The use of soil venting, or soil vapor extraction… CONTINUE READING
