A large-scale, long-term simulation of the hydrogeochemical behaviour of fractured rocks is shown in this post. The simulations are performed with iCP, the COMSOL-Phreeqc interface, that allows performing 3D reactive transport simulations in discrete fractures accounting for matrix diffusion (as a 4...

Dating groundwater is something that hydrogeologists like to do for different practical purposes. Conceptual modeling of aquifers, evaluating the sustainability of groundwater exploitation in arid and semi-arid areas, sitting a deep geological repository for radioactive waste are obvious examples...

Distribution coefficients, also known as Kd values, are lumped parameters that contain information about the radionuclude-soil/rock interaction processes. These values are of paramount importance in performance assessment studies of nuclear waste repositories as they are used to predict the fate ... Read more...
