  1. 1. Solute transport in fractured rocks : Analysis of analytical solutions and determination of transport parameters

    Author : Shuo Meng; Longcheng Liu; Ivars Neretnieks; Lanru Jing; Klaus-Peter Kröhn; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Fractured rock; Radionuclide transport; Analytical solution; Dispersion mechanisms; Electromigration.; Sprickigt berg; Radionukidtransport; analytisk lösning; Dispersionsmekanismer; Elektromigration.; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract : In order to facilitate the assessment of the safety and function of deep geological repositories for radioactive waste, several models have been developed to describe water flow and transport of solutes in fractured crystalline rock. The rock around the repository is described and modelled as a network of water-bearing fractures. READ MORE

  2. 2. Solute transport in the integrated soil-groundwater system

    Author : Eva Simic; KTH; []
    Keywords : solute transport; groundwater transport; integrated soil.groundwater system;

    Abstract : A Lagrangian stochastic travel time approach has been usedfor investigating dominant process impacts on (non-reactive andreactive) solute transport in the integrated soil-groundwatersystem. A first step has also been taken to extending thisLagrangian stochastic travel time approach to integrate thesoil-groundwater-stream transport through a catchment. READ MORE

  3. 3. Solute Transport Across Scales : Time Series Analyses of Water Quality Responses to Quantify Retention and Attenuation Mechanisms in Watersheds

    Author : Joakim Riml; Anders Wörman; Aaron I. Packman; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Solute transport modeling; Transient storage; Tracer test; Central temporal moments; Spectral analysis; Parameterization;

    Abstract : The intra-continental movement of waterborne contaminants is governed by the distribution of solute load in the landscape along with the characteristics and distribution of the hydrological pathways that transport the solutes. An understanding of the processes affecting the transport and fate of the contaminants is crucial for assessments of solute concentrations and their environmental effect on downstream recipients.

  4. 4. The Lagrangian Stochastic Advective-Reactive Approach to Modeling Solute Transport in Hydrological Systems

    Author : Archana Gupta; KTH; []
    Keywords : solute transport; groundwater transport; unsaturated zone; stream hydrology; stream networks; stochastic processes; mass transfer kinetics; preferential flow; temporal moments; catchment hydrology; Lagrangian transport model;

    Abstract : The Lagrangian stochastic advective-reactive modelingapproach has been used for analyzing transport of bothnonreactive and reactive solutes in different hydrologicalsystems (structured soil, groundwater, mining waste rockdeposits and surface waters including single stream and networkof streams) and at different spatio-temporal scales (rangingfrom laboratory column-scale to catchment-scale). Further, afirst step has been taken to extending the Lagrangianstochastic advective-reactive modeling methodology to integratethe soil-groundwater-stream transport through a catchment. READ MORE

  5. 5. Effect of Hyporheic Exchange on Conservative and Reactive Solute Transport in Streams : Model Assessments Based on Tracer Tests

    Author : Karin Jonsson; Anders Wörman; Bernhard H. Schmid; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Earth sciences; conservative; hyporheic exchange; model; reactive; retention; solute; sorption kinetics; stream transport; temporal moments; tracer experiment; Geovetenskap; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; Sedimentology; sedimentologi;

    Abstract : Understanding of the processes affecting solute transport in flowing water is important for the possibility to predict the evolution with time of polluted stream systems. This thesis presents tracer experiment methodology and model developments for solute transport in streams, with special focus on retention processes and their effect on solute stream transport.
