An automated, nonintrusive technique is discussed that determines salt concentrations in dense leachate plumes. The dense plumes were introduced from a line source into a relatively narrow flow container filled with a partially saturated medium sand. Solute breakthrough curves and vertical transects of closely spaced concentration measurements were obtained for a stable and an unstable dense leachate plume.
