Title: Quantifying and Predicting Reactive Transport of Uranium in Waste Plumes: Are Colloids and Nanoparticles Important?

Abstract

The Hanford Site is the DOE's largest legacy waste site, with uranium (U) from plutonium processing being a major contaminant in its subsurface. Accidental release of highly concentrated high-level wastes left large quantities of U in the vadose zone under tank farms. The U contamination has been found in groundwater beneath the tank farms, indicating U is mobile.
