A compilation and evaluation of sorption coefficients used in the geosphere model of SYVAC for the 1990 assessment of the Whiteshell Research Area

Abstract

We describe the development of a parametric model that expresses sorption of trace amounts of radioactive and chemically toxic elements from groundwater on geological material as a function of two independent variables: the concentration of the trace element, and the total dissolved solids used to provide sorption coefficients for a contaminant transport model used in performance assessment calculations for a case study of a hypothetical nuclear fuel waste disposal concept in an extensively characterized intrusive rock formation, the Lac du Bonnet batholith. The sorption database in this report is based on laboratory results, literature surveys, and chemical homologs. The arguments used to apply sorption data obtained on unconsolidated material to contaminant transport through intact rock are described. Data are presented for the sorption of 39 elements on three rock types and on 13 primary and secondary minerals, under oxic and anoxic conditions. 166 refs., 12 figs., 4 tabs.
