Short description: Extract from abstract: Laboratory test systems are frequently used to assess the release of pollutants from contaminated sites. To infer behaviour in the field, all factors that control the release of such pollutants should be considered in the experiment. We carried out column experiments with varying boundary conditions under saturated flow to identify the processes governing the release and to evaluate the effect of environmental conditions on several polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). We compared the results with groundwater concentrations monitored in the field.
