The session will give the opportunity to present experimental, field and modelling work on solute and reactive transport in the field of groundwater remediation (e.g. permeable reactive barriers) and the 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 assessments.
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 extrapolation to the long-term evolution of reactive barriers and repositories.
