Long description: This paper presents work investigating the Lagrangian dispersion of reactive solutes in the framework of the formulation of transport by travel time distributions, aimed at models of basin-scale, diffuse transport of pollutants applicable to complex geomorphological settings. It is shown that in many cases (typically when heterogeneous conditions prevail) a simpler model of reaction kinetics, where spatial gradients in the immobile concentration are neglected, does well. A natural extension of current geomorphological models of the hydrologic response to generic transport phenomena is suggested.
