By Walter J. Weber Jr., Kurt D. Pennell (auth.), Mustafa M. Aral (eds.)

In the prior many years, environmental scientists, economists and physicists were juggling serious concerns inside environmental innovations and environmental administration kinds with a view to discover a possible medium among restricted assets, long-term calls for and goals, and curiosity teams. within the look for most sensible administration possible choices, perform has gone through a pendulum swing among levels that may be characterized as frontier economics, radical environmentalism, source management/allocation, selective environmentalism and sustainable environmental administration. the following level of administration needs to resolution such questions as: `Can there be a world - uniform environmental strategy?', or `Based on their features, can various concerns, diversified areas and diversified purposes have exact environmental strategies?' in keeping with this premise, the following degree of administration could be pointed out as chance established sustainable environmental administration. The target of this kind may be the hazard dependent, long-term, harmonious administration of financial assets and environmental protection for healthiness, security and prosperity of sustainable populations. whilst review of chance or possibility dependent rating of administration choices input the image as a part of the final puzzle, then social coverage, ethics and health and wellbeing matters imagine a vital position within the administration method. monetary incentives and environmental constraints need to be thought of harmoniously, the most emphasis being put on security and renovation of human health and wellbeing and the long run maintaining of populations.

Original theoretical schemes were developed and realized numerically for description of mass-transport in ionic, organic-complexation and colloidal forms, the latter being most important for radionuclides transport. Special attention was paid to the complicated nonlinear effects forming the transient hydrochemical barriers with abrupt changes of the contaminant concentrations. The formal mathematical basis for this system of models is provided by combining both numerical and analytical methods, the latter being regarded as an essential part of the theoretical development (contrary to the recent trends in western hydrogeology).

The latter aspect changes radically the diagnostic possibilities and makes the test data interpretation, by type-curve matching in particular, a very subjective one. Anyway, one could always suspect that the interpretation results are severely distorted by some systematic error which can approach some hundreds percent in many real cases. As for the scale effects, their possible impact is two-fold. On the one hand, many time-depending effects, such as delay in storage capacity or leakage transients, could not be taken into account properly without observation well measurements.
