What are the models used for the analysis of soil leaching of pollutants in groundwater?

Dear bmiranda,

Following a discussion with our expert in water bodies, it seems that your question is too general to be provided with a clear answer. We would be grateful if you could be more specific about the information you are interested in.
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) – European Soil Portal ( may also provide you with useful information. Contact details to the JRC can be found at:[…]/Soil.html

Hello thank you for considering my question, I will do more specific, does the EEA develops mathematical models for the assessment of the fate and behavior of inorganic compounds leaching into groundwater, such as fertilizer?
My study focuses mainly on NO3-
Any recommendations for models that use the authorities for this purpose?

Dear Bmiranda,

The modelling of fate is done by the Joint Research Centre (JRC) Institute for Environment and Sustainability:
