The Fugacity Concept In Environmental Modelling
Published 1985 · Environmental Science
Recently, the fugacity concept has been introduced and used to model the fate of chemicals which may be accidentally or deliberately released into the environment [1–3]. Its application to environmental fate determinations of toxic substances results in simplified equations for partitioning, transport, and reaction processes and their assembly into a coherent model. Expressing the distribution of contaminants in the environment in terms of fugacity rather than concentration facilitates interpretation of the dynamic processes to which the substances are subject.
