WP 4: Conceptualization and modelling

Beneficiaries: AMPHOS, KEMAKTA, VTT and KIT-INE.
WP leader: Dr. James Crawford (KEMAKTA)


The general objective is to conceptualize and model radionuclide transport processes on systems at different scales. The specific aims of this workpackage are:
  1. Identify key processes governing the overall retention phenomenological observations.
  2. Develop models for processes description, including different scales and different types of radionuclides, in support to WP5.
  3. Identify main sources of uncertainty in processes and parameters, identify how these uncertainties can be decreased, and show how this can be achieved through the project results.
  4. Test consistency between different models and approaches applicable to different spatial scales.
Start date: June 2011

Planned Outcomes:

December 2011 / March 2013
Conceptualization, modelling and up-scaling of radionuclide transport in the crystalline host-rock far-field in support to WP2 experiments and WP5.
