Our most recent article on gas-bentonite interactions in relation to the gas dynamics in Engineered Barrier Systems is now available on-line as open access publication:
Tomonaga, Y., Wersin, P., Rufer, D., Pastina, B., Koho, P., Ville, H., & Kipfer, R. (2022). Gas-bentonite interactions: Towards a better understanding of gas dynamics in Engineered Barrier Systems. Appl. Geochem., 138, 105205, doi:10.1016/j.apgeochem.2022.105205.
This work represents a first attempt to understand to which extent such interactions can affect the gas dynamics in deep geological repositories.
The JpGU Meeting 2018 is almost finished and this is more like a post-mortem update. Here our contributions:
- Horstmann, E., Tomonaga, Y., Brennwald, M. S., & Kipfer, R. (2018). Noble gases to study sediment transport processes around deep-sea vents. Japan Geoscience Union Meeting. Chiba, Japan.
- Tomonaga, Y., Giroud, N., Diomidis, N., Brennwald, M. S., Horstmann, E., Kipfer, R., & Wersin, P. (2018). Evolution of the gas composition in the FE experiment, an unsaturated SF/HLW emplacement drift at Mt. Terri, Switzerland. Japan Geoscience Union Meeting. Chiba, Japan.
Tomorrow we will be at the Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute (AORI) of The University of Tokyo.
