The task to develop a practicable simulation tool for optimal control of soil vapor extraction was attacked by an interdisciplinary group consisting of mathematicians, soil physicists, chemists and in cooperation with a remediation company. The purpose of this book is to describe the latest and most appropriate mathematical and numerical methods for optimizing soil venting and to demonstrate the application beginning with a conceptual mathematical model, the derivation and estimation of model parameters, generation of parameter distributions, sensitivity analysis, model calibration and numerical analysis of two spillage test cases, and stochastic optimization. The monograph considers mathematical, numerical, technical aspects as well as the practical significance. This book will be of interest to applied mathematicians, geophysicists, geoecologists, soil physicists, and environmental engineers.
