Abstract

Chemval is an international exercise aimed at the verification and validation of predictive models describing groundwater speciation and geochemical transport. Stages 3 and 4 are concerned with the verification and validation of coupled chemical transport models in particular, which attempt to link equilibrium chemistry to hydrodynamic transport. This report describes the methodology employed and results obtained for 15 verification tests of varying complexity. The outcome of validation studies against two well-characterised experimental systems is also assessed in terms of the requirements for radiological risk assessment.
