(Flinders University) Naturally occurring groundwater arsenic contamination is a problem of global significance, particularly in South and Southeast Asian aquifers. To address this problem, an Australian team of scientists with colleagues at the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology (Eawag), have used computer modelling to integrate computer simulations that mimic the complex interactions between groundwater flow, solute transport and geochemical reaction mechanisms to predict the behaviour of arsenic within aquifers — and where and when pollution may occur in future.
