BIOPLUME III

ENVIRONMENT

Any of the models—the current iteration is BIOPLUME III, released in 1997—used by environmental scientists to simulate the natural attenuation of organic contaminants in groundwater due to the processes of advection, dispersion, sorption, and biodegradation

BIOPLUME is a two-dimensional, finite difference model for simulating the biodegradation of hydrocarbons using a number of aerobic and anaerobic electron acceptors: oxygen, nitrate, iron (III), sulfate, and carbon dioxide. Biotransformation processes are important in restoring aquifers contaminated with organic/hydrocarbon pollutants. These processes require evaluation in remedial action planning studies associated with contaminants.
