Soil and other environmental scientists provide information needed to understand the sorption and transport of heavy metals in soils and aquifers in cases where several heavy metals are competing for sorption sites on soil matrix surfaces, which is true in most cases. They explain how that competition can be used as a factor in predicting the movement of various metals through the vadose zone and aquifers. Among their topics are the equilibrium and kinetic modeling of competitive heavy metals sorption and transport in soils, leaching of antimony from contaminated soils, mercury sorption and desorption by tropical soils, the influence of selenium speciation and fractionation on its mobility in soils, sorption and desorption of heavy metals in low-activity clays under coffee tracts of South India, and release rates of solutes from phosphatic shales in Southeast Idaho in the western US.
