In the safety assessment of geological disposal of high-level radioactive waste, it is an important task to confirm applicability of the models and parameters to quantify the radionuclide migration based on laboratory diffusion and sorption tests to the actual underground environment. In this study, the second Long-Term Diffusion (LTD-II) test at the GTS using tritiated water (HTO), Cl-36, Na-22, Cs-134 and Ba-133 as tracers were analysed focusing borehole disturbed zone (BDZ) effect near borehole and diffusion anisotropy by the foliation effect. We measured the detailed depth profile of the cations and wide-range distributions of HTO and Cl-36 around an injection hole by additional laboratory analysis, and in situ LTD-II test results were predicted by the scaling approach from laboratory to in situ condition.
