Reactive Transport Division  


Reactive Transport

Research interest

  • We study transport processes by means of radiotracer applications at laboratory scale.
  • The array of applied methods includes:
    → Production of radionuclides
    → Development of radiotracer substances
    → Process studies in equilibrium and kinetic systems, in batch and columns
    → (3D+t) visualization of transport processes by means of GeoPET
    → Extraction of the velocity field of GeoPET data sets
    → Development of conceptual models
    → Numerical modeling of reactive transport processes in geosystems.
