Abstract This paper describes a mathematical model for the prediction of moisture movement in spent oil shale waste dumps, where there is a layering sequence of the different waste materials. Moisture movement is integral to the problem of leachate formation. To describe the moisture movement within the waste, evaporation from the surface must also be estimated. When the waste dump is initially constructed the surface will be devoid of vegetation, and the problem of bare surface evaporation is shown to be considerably different from that when plants are present.
