Groundwater remediation is a process that is heavily dependent upon the properties of the subsurface. Dispersion is a huge factor that controls the spread of a chemical’s mass from its center, which directly controls the volume of subsurface material affected (Pepper, Gerba, & Brusseau, 2006). Quantifying the dispersivity of the medium in the flow tank will help immensely in trying to accurately predict the zone of influence of the slow-release oxidant candles.
