Abstract: In this review article, authors presented up to date developments on experimental, modeling and field studies on the role of subsurface colloidal fines on contaminant transport in saturated porous media. It is a complex phenomenon in porous media involving several basic processes such as colloidal fines release, dispersion stabilization, migration and fines entrapment / plugging at the pore constrictions and adsorption at solid/liquid interface. The effects of these basic processes on the contaminant transport have been compiled. Here, the authors, first presented the compilation on insitu colloidal fines sources, release, stabilization of colloidal dispersion and migration which are a function of physical and chemical conditions of subsurface environment and finally their role on inorganic and organic contaminants transport in porous media. This review article is superior over last two review articles by Elimelech and Ryan [3] and Kretzschmar et al. [6] respectively as (i) It gives n...
