STUDIES OF THE CHROMIUM SOIL DISTRIBUTION COEFFICIENT FOR USE IN RISK ASSESSMENT MODELS
The transport of chromium from a repository through a soil layer to ground-water has been simulated by a mathematical model based on the finite element method. Input to the model was obtained from laboratory experiments with Cr (VI) and Cr (III) species. Different types of soil were investigated over a broad concentration range. The soil-water distribution coefficient was shown to be a crucial parameter for determining the resulting Cr concentration in groundwater.
