Competitive Sorption and Transport of Heavy Metals in Soils and Geological Media

H. Magdi Selim
March 29, 2017

Most reported incidents of soil contamination include an array of heavy metals species rather than a single ion. The various interactions in these multicomponent or multiple-ion systems significantly impact the fate and transport of heavy metals, and competition for sorption sites on soil matrix...

Dynamics and Bioavailability of Heavy Metals in the Rootzone

H. Magdi Selim
March 29, 2017

Concerns regarding heavy metal contamination in terrestrial ecosystems have prompted increasing efforts on limiting their bioavailability in the root zone. The complexity of the hydrologic system gives rise to the need for understanding the fate and transport of trace elements in the...
