## Abstract

In this research work, we provide a regular perturbation analysis of a non – linear equation arising in contaminant transport. The equation is characterised by advection, diffusion and absorption. Assuming the adsorption term is modelled by a Freundlich isotherm it can be non-linear in concentration and non-differentiable as the concentration approaches zero. We consider the approximation of this equation using a regular perturbation and thereby solving the resulting linear equations analytically.
