Although dissolved metals are primarily transported in overland flow, some underground transport is possible (Nriagu, 1996). Metals that are introduced to the unsaturated zone and the saturated zone will most likely not be transported a long distance. Dissolved metals that are carried below the land surface will readily sorb to soil particles or lithic material in the unsaturated zone and the saturated zone (Nriagu, 1996). Metals introduced into the atmosphere may be carried to the land surface by precipitation and dry fallout.
