6.5 Specifying Mobile and Immobile Parameters

User defined parameters can be specified to be mobile or immobile. Immobile parameters can represent entities such as a sorbed species or ionic strength of the solution at a node. To specify an immobile parameter from the list of parameter names, activate the Parameters Window in Form View (discussed above), select the desired parameter, and clear the Mobile check box located below the list of parameters.

To specify a user defined parameter as mobile, check the mobile check box. When this option is checked, three edit boxes will appear. These boxes allow the user to edit the longitudinal dispersivity, transverse dispersivity and diffusion coefficient. For a further discussion of these parameters, see the BUGS SCRATCHPAD Technical Reference.
