It differs from the more common equation used to express Darcy’s law which is specific to the flow of water through the ground, and is based on the saturated hydraulic permeability of the ground. It should be noted that the theory assumes laminar, uncompressible gas flow and does not take into account any chemical or biochemical reactions that may occur along the migration route. 03 × 10-5 Q is the volume of methane migrating from the source through this pathway. g. oxidation of methane). 3 Diffusive flow Diffusion depends on a concentration gradient being present (the gas flows from an area of high concentration to an area with a lower concentration).

Carbon monoxide: is produced by the partial combustion of organic material in the absence of free oxygen. Large volumes can be generated by underground fires in coal mines and in landfill sites where incomplete combustion results in carbon monoxide being formed in preference to carbon dioxide. g. aminoacids, amines, amides and nitrates) in soil to form ammonia. For example Gas and vapour generation and migration 41 in organic rich soils urea can be hydrolysed to form ammonia and carbon dioxide: CON2H4 + H20 → CO2 + 2NH3 Decomposition of nitrogen compounds involves chemical and biochemical processes (protein and bacteria in a landfill).

Greater exposure can lead to loss of consciousness and death At 20–150 ppm watering eyes, blurred vision, shortness of breath, sore throat.
