The session should give the opportunity to present experimental and modelling work on solute and reactive transport in the field of deep geological storage of nuclear waste. We welcome contributions presenting results from national and international R&D projects, experimental and modelling studies, and applications from performance assessment.
We especially encourage contributions related to:
- Fundamental investigations of physical and chemical processes related to transport and their interactions (couplings).
- The linking of relevant processes at different space and time scales (e.g. lab, field and repository scales).
- Probabilistic safety assessment (e.g. conceptualization of coupled processes, quantification of uncertainty and sensitivity).
- The use of short-term laboratory and field experiments and their extension to the long-term evolution of repositories.
