For a h= 60 cm. the time is approxima- 54 tely 200 years. This comparison of times further illustrates that the initiation time is extremely brief and that the sediment-side resistance dominate the leaching process.

The contaminant then moves into the turbulent zone of the benthic boundary layer. These concepts give a simple two-layer structure to the benthic boundary layer.
