Analytical solutions are developed for two problems of longitudinal dispersion within semi-infinite, nonadsorbing, homogeneous, isotropic media in unidirectional flow fields. The source concentrations consist of variable inputs of contaminants. The solutions predict the distribution of contaminants resulting from the variable source concentrations. Numerical examples are presented.
