Analytical solutions have been obtained to two problems of dispersion in a layered porous medium. The solution for longitudinal dispersion in flow perpendicular to the layers is given in terms of an integral, which has to be evaluated numerically for each layer. The solution for lateral dispersion in flow along the layers is in a closed form. Experiments were conducted to verify the theoretical results.
