Stochastic Approach The spatial variability of soil structure in the field is so large and complex that some researchers have concluded that mechanistic modeling is not feasible. Jury ( 1982)has suggested the use of a transfer function based on the probability density function of solute travel time through soil as proposed by Raats (1978). Dispersion of the applied solute is attributed to velocity variations in the soil. , 1982). This approach, though attractive in principle, is site-specific, and extensive measurements must be made at any new site.
