Abstract

During the production, transport, storage and use of hydrocarbons, there is a possibility of harmful impacts on the environment and human health. Considering the magnitude of the pollution problem it is necessary to understand a saturation distribution of the pollutants (oil) in the soil subsurface, among the other pollution data. The model presented in this paper is solely related to the saturation distribution of the hydrocarbon pollutants. In order to carry out a timely assessment of the pollution parameters for the selection of the most appropriate remediation approach, there is a need for a simple prediction model. This paper gives an overview of a mathemacical model which is easy to use for environmental practice and requires small amounts of data for the calculation of the saturation d
