A Hydrologic-Geophysical Method for Characterizing Flow and Transport Processes within the Vadose Zone

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The objective of this study is to analyze flow and transport within the vadose zone during a midscale hydrologic infiltration experiment to characterize in-situ transport processes. This project will employ numerical and experimental tools developed under a previously funded EMSP proposal (project number 55332) to provide 3-D unsaturated hydrologic property distributions. In the present project, geophysical imaging techniques will be employed to track an analogue contaminant plume. The results will provide a better understanding of transport modes including the influence of natural heterogeneities and man-made structures within the vadose zone at DOE sites. In addition the data will provide checks ... continued below

In addition the data will provide checks against which numerical flow and transport simulations can be compared.
