Abstract: In the past ten years since enacting CERCLA and SARA regulations there is a lack of model to adequately address the fate/transport of immiscible constituents in groundwater systems. This paper presents the behavior of immiscible contaminants, immiscible constituents, and the three phase system. The MOFAT-2D model developed for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is used in predicting the plume migration of p-cymene and to conduct the sensitivity analysis of various model parameters, such as, the unsaturated flow parameters alpha and n, porosity, and permeability.
