averaging method, finite difference method, boundary conditions of third type, heavy metals, peat bog


The mathematical model for calculation of concentration of metals for 3 layers peat blocks is developed due to solving the 3-D boundary-value problem in multilayered domain-averaging and finite difference methods are considered. As an example, mathematical models for calculation of Fe and Ca concentrations have been analyzed.
