My supercomputing class is doing a project on the contamination of groundwater due to landfills.

I searched "leachate" in our on-line research library catalog and found over 94 entries. Here are two that may give you some useful leads relevant to super-computing:

Groundwater Leachate: Modelling, Monitoring, Sampling. 1984 Paul N. Cheremisinoff, K. Gigliello, T. O'Neill, Lancaster, PA: technomic Publishing Co.

Simulation of Leachate Generation from Municipal Solid Waste. 1988 N.D. Williams, et al. Cincinnati, OH: US EPA Hazardous Waste Engineering Research Lab
