About this book

This text focuses on coupled processes in soil. Topics covered include: the effects of inorganic salts on water flow; modelling of sorption; transport and transformation of organic solutes; and the effects of micro-organisms on silicate clay minerals. The book presents studies and approaches that can be extended and complemented by innovative work in the future.
