This bibliographic report gives an overview of colloid migration in the geosphere. The first three chapters are mainly descriptive and confirm the necessity of such a study. They summarise the general knowledge about colloids including definition, description of the possible origins, and behaviour in natural groundwater systems. The importance of the migration phenomenon and the mechanisms of transport through a solid medium are also recalled. The last two chapters are devoted to the prediction of colloid behaviour and laboratory experiments and mathematical formulation of different approaches for modelling colloid transport. The first simulation results are also given.
