In this paper, a comparative study on two characteristics-based finite element algorithms are presented. Some analytical test problems which embrace many real features of environmental applications in advection-dominated mass transport phenomenon are modelled: pure advection of a 2-D Gaussian concentration-hill in a rotating flow, diffusion in a plane shear flow and continuous source in an oscillating flow.
