Article on gas-bentonite interactions (open access)

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.

Japan Geoscience Union Meeting 2018

TheĀ  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.
