Colloid and Colloid-Facilitated Radionuclide Transport at the Semi-Arid Hanford Site
Considerable amount of radioactive waste has been released to vadose zone sediments at the Hanford site. Colloids can facilitate the movement of radionuclides through the subsurface. However, most evidence for ...
FATE AND TRANSPORT OF RADIONUCLIDES [U(VI), Sr, Cs] IN VADOSE ZONE SEDIMENTS AT THE HANFORD SITE
Physical and chemical heterogeneities are inherent in subsurface environments due to varying: mineralogy, pore geometry, solution saturation, and solute concentration. The goals of this research were to study the heterogeneities ...
The role of secondary aluminosilicate minerals in technetium-99 immobilization in radioactive waste
Corroding waste tanks at select U.S. Department of Energy's nuclear waste facility have leaked highly alkaline tank waste solutions containing radionuclides and other contaminants into subsurface sediments. These tank ...
