An in-situ long-term diffusion (LTD) experiment was performed at the Grimsel Test Site (Switzerland). Tracers, HTO, $$^{22}$$Na$$^{+}$$, $$^{134}$$Cs$$^{+}$$, were continuously circulated through a packed-off borehole and the tracer concentrations in the solution was monitored for 2.5 years. Subsequently, the borehole section was overcored and the tracer profiles in the rock analyzed. The drop in activity for Cs$$^{+}$$ in the solution was much pronounced. Transport distances were about 20 cm for HTO, 10 cm for Na$$^{+}$$ and 1 cm for Cs$$^{+}$$. The dataset was analyzed with diffusion-sorption models by different teams using different codes, with the goal of obtaining effective diffusion coefficients ($$D$$$$_{e}$$) and rock capacity ($$alpha$$) values. There was a rather good agreement between the values from different teams, implied that $$D$$$$_{e}$$ and $$alpha$$ values in the BDZ are larger than those in the bulk rock. However, HTO seems to display large discrepancies between measured and modeled results, which have to be investigated in more detail.
