Rewetting Transition Effect on Colloid Transport and Colloid-facilitated Transport in the Vadose Zone Grant uri icon



  • Certain contaminants that one would not expect to be mobile in the groundwater may be mobile if they sorb onto small particles that move through the groundwater. The purpose of this project is to see if colloids with the potential to transport contaminants are more mobile immediately after significant recharge to a very dry soil.
