The present status of research on the transport and fate of contaminants in the subsurface will be briefly reviewed. The discussion will center on solution-phase processes; other equally important processes (e.g., transformation reactions, vapor-phase processes, immiscible liquid-phase processes) are discussed in other papers presented in this issue.
