The development of a physically based model to simulate the transport of soil solutes in runoff has provided a better understanding of the mechanisms of transport and has assisted in the development of effective methods to control nutrient loss from soils and the pollution of waterways. Assuming that the exchange rate is controlled by raindrop splash, the AA. neglected the effects of diffusion. To calibrate their model, laboratory experiments were conducted on disturbed loessial soil with 3 initial soil-moisture contents under 3 rainfall intensities and 3 slope gradients. The model's simulated data agreed well with the experimental data, demonstrating that the refined model captured the temporal behaviour of solute transport in the runoff. This study provides a new approach to the modelling of chemical transport by investigating the effects of raindrops on sediments from soil in surface runoff
