Advances in Subsurface Pollution of Porous Media - Indicators, Processes and Modelling
IAH selected papers, volume 14
- This format is currently out of stock.
Advances in Subsurface Contamination of Porous Media: Indicators, Processes and Modelling provides a high level understanding of the processes concerning common and emergent contaminants through their passage from soil to groundwater. The book presents new methodologies and indicators to reach a better understanding of biogeochemical processes as a basis for environmental models. The combined use of the understanding of processes and models’ prognosis will inform researches and water managers and will provide the possibility for better management and preservation of water resources.
The book will be a valuable reference for graduate students, researchers and professionals in government and public institutions, and for those interested in soil and groundwater contamination in various aspects.

Lucila Candela is professor at the Department of Geotechnical Engineering and
Geoscience-UPC (Barcelona, Spain). Her research topics mainly address the nature and
fate of contaminants in the subsurface, laboratory process studies on contaminant transport
in porous media, and groundwater hydrology.
Iñaki Vadillo is researcher and lecturer at the Department of Geology, University of
Malaga (Spain). He is investigating the understanding of hydrochemical processes of
contaminants in aquifers (Nitrate pollution, landfills, isotope application in groundwater
Francisco Javier Elorza is professor at the Department of Applied Mathematics in the
Madrid School of Mines – UPM (Madrid, Spain). His research topics mainly address
the numerical simulation of the nature and fate of contaminants in the surface and the
subsurface, stochastic modelling of environmental problems (i.e. transport in porous and
fracture geological media) and the simulation of coupled processes in porous media.
