Abstract

The study presents a mathematical modelling of copper dispersion in soil. The samples have been collected from the same points of the sampling network, from surface and depth in 2001 and only to surface in 2002 and analyzed using the ICP-AES method. The extrapolation of the experimental results led to the dispersion curves of the copper concentrations both at surface and depth. Based on these, the appreciation of the most polluted areas and theirs migration related to characteristics of the environment can be observed.
