Reconciliation of experimental and modelling concepts in a natural analogue of radionuclide migration

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


One of the major problems in testing radionuclide transport models with a natural analogue is the potential discrepancy between experimental and modelling concepts. In the matrix diffusion studies at Palmottu the measured U-series concentration profiles and mathematical simulations showed disagreement, suggesting discrepancy in respective concepts of radionuclide attachment on the rock pores. Here, the discrepancy was approached by studying uranium fixation in more detail within the most loosely-bound fraction.
