A systematic approach for modeling metal ion sorption phenomena occurring in aqueous solutions is presented here, with a discussion on environmental applications. Three different models are introduced: the surface complex formation model (SCFM) to describe sorption equilibrium; the KINEQL model to describe sorption kinetics; and the HYDROGEOCHEM model to describe transport of metal ions in treatment systems, as well as in natural subsurface systems.
