Quantitative field-scale descriptions of water flow and chemical transport in the unsaturated (vadose) zone are essential for improving the basic understanding of the transport process in near-surface geological environments, and for providing predictive tools that, in turn, will be used to predict the future spread of pollutants in these environments. One of the distinctive features of a natural formation at the field scale is the spatial heterogeneity of its properties that affect flow and transport. This spatial heterogeneity is generally irregular; it occurs on a scale beyond the scope of laboratory samples and has a distinct effect on the spatial distribution of solutes, which results from transport through the formation. A fundamental question is that of how to develop predictive models that may incorporate the impact of field-scale spatial variability of the formation properties on vadose-zone flow and transport.
