H064: Hydrogeophysical characterization of reactive transport processes

Session ID#: 22642
Session Description: Coupled with flow, biogeochemical reactions play a pivotal role in shaping the Earth’s shallow subsurface. Hydrogeophysical methods can be attractive for improved characterization and monitoring of the reactive transport processes in porous media because of their capability to provide spatiotemporal data at large scales. When coupled with traditional biogeochemical approaches and modeling, hydrogeophysical methods can play a unique role in improving our understanding of the reactive transport processes. While great potential exists, the application of geophysical methods can be challenging. Often times, interpretation can be challenging due to non-unique correlations between the geophysical attributes and the parameters of interest. This session invites laboratory, field, and numerical studies investigating reactive transport processes using geophysical methods. Examples include critical zone processes, hydrobiogeochemical dynamics at interfaces, soil and groundwater remediation, as well as geotechnical and geoengineering applications. We are specifically interested in studies combining hydrogeophysics with reactive transport modeling and traditional biogeochemical methods.
