### Abstract

Suppose in a convection-dispersion equation, governing solute movement in a saturated porous medium of infinite extent, the convection velocity components are periodic functions of spatial coordinates. Then it follows from a general mathematical result that the solute concentration can be asymptotically approximated by a Gaussian density. Two theoretical examples, with and without a constant vertical velocity, are given to illustrate an application of this mathematical result to solute dispersion in a parallel-bedded, 3-dimensional aquifer of infinite extent.-from Authors
