Changes in advection and dispersion caused by retardation and degradation were studied at the landfill site "Monte Scherbelino" near Frankfurt/Main, Germany. In terms of groundwater transport, the site is considered as non-steady state and the effect of retardation and degradation on advective-dispersive transport is pivotal. By applying a technique named as "breakthrough stage analysis (BTSA)", ratios of conservative and reactive compounds were determined along specific flow paths. Depth-specific samples were also collected during this study. Results were evaluated using reference graphs. The data set consists of long-term groundwater quality monitoring data including major ions, field parameters, heavy metals, adsorbable organic halides (AOX) and some organic trace compounds. The data set consists of hydrochemical analyses from 1968 until the construction of a cut-off trench in 1995. The BTSA tool opens additional possibilities for interpretation of groundwater plumes from landfill leachates beyond numerical transport models. © 2012 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.
