Effects of Colloids and Microorganisms on Radionuclide Migration in Fractured Rock

Kurosawa, Susumi; Yui, Mikazu; Yoshikawa, Hideki

It is reported that the nuclide migration in groundwater is enhanced according to transport behavior of colloids compared with the migration behavior as the ion when the nuclide generates colloids. For example, in the colloids and radionuclide retardation experiment (CRR experiment) in the Grimusel test site in Switzerland had been performed as collaboration of JNC and NAGRA (Switzerland), the possibility that the nuclide migration was enhanced by the influence of the colloids in the groundwater was indicated. We will present on the simulations of the analysis by numerical code COLFRAC which describes colloid-facilitated solute transport in fractured media. Moreover, in order to evaluate the impact of microorganism on the performance assessment for geological disposal of HLW, we simulated effects of microorganism on radionuclide migration by using the COLFRAC code.
