ESM 222 Fate and Transport of Pollutants in the Environment Lab #8: Modeling Reactive Fate & Transport Report due 06/06/08 Objective: Understand the use of numerical models for modeling reactive fate and transport. For this lab exercise, we use the BIOCHLOR model. BIOCHLOR is a “screening” model developed for USEPA to evaluate natural attenuation of chlorinated solvents in the subsurface. Methods: The BIOCHLOR model is a spreadsheet model, available from ( http://www.bren.ucsb.edu/~keller/courses/esm222/syllabus.htm ). The website includes a PDF document that describes BIOCHLOR and its use for screening purposes. We will first tour the BIOCHLOR model, first using the default values for advection, dispersion, retardation and reaction, and then adjusting them to evaluate the effect of the various parameters. First right-click on the model and save it in your desktop, since it doesn’t work well from the Explorer browser. Then open it up with Excel. You will notice a section for advection, another for dispersion, a third one
