The paper investigate the deposition of phosphorus through the lithology of the environment, thus examine their transport processes, it also expresses the behaviour of the micronutrient in uniform coarse formation, the rate of migration was monitored in terms of the concentrations in predominant homogeneous fine sand formations, this study was found imperative because of high rate of phosphorus concentration at different predominant homogeneous depositions, such conditions were critically evaluated to determine the cause of fast deposition and migration, the derived model was generated through the developed governing equation, the developed model was simulated to produce theoretical values, the system generated several linearized migrating processes, but with different concentrations. The theoretical values were compared with experimental data for model validation, both parameters express favourable fits, the study is imperative because the uniformity of fine sand formation has generated various rate of concentration including their transport processes. Experts will definitely apply this concept to observe various rate of phosphorus concentration in soil and water environment.
