Abstract

The fate and transport of radionuclides through soil is controlled by coupled hydrologic, geochemical, and microbial processes. A multitude of complex soil processes are tightly linked that can both accelerate and impede the subsurface mobility of radioactive contaminants. Often the extent and magnitude of subsurface biogeochemical reactions is controlled by the spatial and temporal variability in soil hydrologic processes.
