Keywords:

  • analysis of transport of mixed Na/Ca salts - three-dimensional heterogeneous variably saturated soil;
  • shortage of rain and water resources - semiarid and arid zones;
  • attenuation of N-compounds - in unsaturated zones;
  • spatial variability in soil properties - deterministic description of heterogeneous soil;
  • coupling-interaction parameters;
  • physical parameters, realizations of stationary random space functions (RSFs);
  • simulation, powerful tool - regarded as “numerical experiment”;
  • tracer solute travel time;
  • soil solution–soil matrix physicochemical interactions - affecting water flow and solute transport;
  • transport of tracer and sorptive solutes - under transient flow conditions
