Title: Laboratory Experiments on Bentonite Samples: FY16 Progress

The primary goal of this study is to improve the understanding of U(VI) sorption and diffusion behavior in sodium-montmorillonite in order to support the development of realistic conceptual models describing these processes in performance assessment models while (1) accounting for potential changes in system conditions over time and space, (2) avoiding overly conservative transport predictions, and (3) using a minimum number of fitting parameters.
