Within this thesis a new multiphase approach to the modeling of organic compound migration in the subsurface has been developed. This comprehensive approach enables the modeler to track the movement of a chemical contaminant in three separate forms: as a non-aqueous phase, as a soluble component of the water phase, and as a mobile fraction of the gas phase. To implement this approach, one and two dimensional simulators were constructed. The capabilities of these simulators were then demonstrated by examples of fuel oil and TCE migration in a porous medium.
