Abstract :

A numerical model was employed to simulate hydrocarbon bioremediation in ground water aquifers. The model, which allows for aerobic degradation, uses the method of characteristics for solving the independent transport of microorganisms, oxygen and hydrocarbons. Model simulations, which exhibit sound correlations as compared to similar soil column studies, reveal estimated time of remediation.
