This report describes the results of sorption experiments designed to provide essential data for migration modelling. Sorption of 233U from natural groundwater onto peat from Broubster and silt from Needle's Eye was studied under atmospheric conditions and different pH regimes. The temperature was maintained at 10 C and, in the case of the Needle's Eye silt, the kinetics of sorption were followed. The results were analysed in conjunction with speciation modelling in an attempt to understand the sorption mechanisms and to extrapolate the findings to cover the range of conditions likely to be met in the field.
