The work of Ogata and Banks, Harleman and Rumer, Cleary and Adrian, Atul Kumar et al., Mojtabi and Deville are reviewed for linear advection-diffusion equations and for nonlinear, we have chosen the work of Sakai and Kimura. Some enthusiastic functions used in the articles, drawbacks and applications of the results are discussed. Reduction of the advection-diffusion equations into diffusion equations make the governing equation solvable by using integral transform method for analytical solution. For nonlinear advection-diffusion equations, the Cole-Hopf transformation is used to reduce into the diffusion equation. Different dispersion phenomena in atmosphere, surface and subsurface area are outlined.</p>}, number={15}, journal={Scientific World}, author={Gautam, Pushpa Nidhi and Sapkota, Buddhi Prasad and Uprety, Kedar Nath}, year={2022}, month={Jun.}, pages={4–9} }
