|Title||Expression of Interest for Collaborative Study :Characterization of geophysical parameters related to transport of contaminant through geological medium of Kalpakkam site.|
|Theme||In the event of accidental spill/ leakage of contaminants (e.g., radionuclides/ toxic chemicals) from storage facilities , though extremely unlikely, the stored activity would be exposed to the surrounding geological medium and undergoes migration in environment. Computational models are used for the estimation of contaminant transport through geological medium for impact assessment. An important aspect of this process is that the transport is critically governed by the nature of the surrounding geological medium. Hence, the characterization of the surrounding geological medium is crucial for simulation of migration of a contaminant|
|Scope of the Study||The study deals with characterization of the geologic medium of Kalpakkam site region by determining geophysical parameters for contaminant transport studies. The geophysical parameters critical to the estimation / simulation of contaminant transport will be generated through field experiments and laboratory analysis. Following parameters are of importance for contaminant transport studies
|Academic / Research Institutes with expertise in field geological investigations and laboratory studies for the determination of geological parameters like diffusion, hydraulic conductivity etc. and expertise for conducting experiments for advance studies.|
