    A screening survey of 81 pharmaceuticals was carried out at a wastewater facility and in a detrital aquifer (Barcelona, Spain), where treated wastewater (TWW) was injected through wells to build up a hydraulic barrier ...
  • PROOST: object-oriented approach to multiphase reactive transport modeling in porous media 

    Gamazo, Pablo; Slooten, Luit Jan; Carrera Ramírez, Jesús; Saaltink, Maarten Willem; Bea, Sergio Andres; Soler Guitart, Joan (2016-03)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Reactive transport modeling involves solving several nonlinear coupled phenomena, among them, the flow of fluid phases, the transport of chemical species and energy, and chemical reactions. There are different ways to ...
  • Bromine and bromide content in soils: analytical approach from total reflection X-ray fluorescence spectrometry 

    Gallardo, Helena; Queralt Mitjans, Ignasi; Tapias, Josefina; Candela Lledó, Lucila; Margui, Eva (2016-08)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Monitoring total bromine and bromide concentrations in soils is significant in many environmental studies. Thus fast analytical methodologies that entail simple sample preparation and low-cost analyses are desired. In the ...
  • Climate and land use changes on streamflow and subsurface recharge in the Fluvià basin, Spain 

    Candela Lledó, Lucila; Tamoh, Karim; Olivares Cerpa, Gonzalo; Gómez Valentín, Manuel (2016-05-28)
    Article
    Open Access
    Climate change impact on water resources (streamflow and deep natural recharge) based on the downscaled outputs from the ECHAM5 general circulation model (GCM) has been investigated in the Mediterranean basin (Fluvià, ...
  • Simulation of chemical reaction localization using a multi-porosity reactive transport approach 

    Soler Sagarra, Joaquim; Luquot, Linda; Martinez Perez, Laura; Saaltink, Maarten Willem; Gaspari, Francesca de; Carrera Ramírez, Jesús (John Gale, 2016-05)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Results of reactive transport laboratory experiments often suggest that pore scale heterogeneity induces localization of reactions (the generation of local micro environments favoring reactions that would not occur in a ...
  • Nitrate pollution of groundwater; all right…, but nothing else? 

    Menció, Anna; Mas-Pla, Josep; Otero, Neus; Regas, O; Boy-Roura, M.; PUIG, R; Bach, J; Domènech Ortí, Cristina; Zamorano, Manel; Brusi, David; Folch Sancho, Albert (2016-01)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Contamination from agricultural sources and, in particular, nitrate pollution, is one of the main concerns in groundwater management. However, this type of pollution entails the entrance of other substances into the aquifer, ...
  • Occurrence and spatial distribution of emerging contaminants in the unsaturated zone. Case study: Guadalete River basin (Cadiz, Spain) 

    Corada-Fernández, Carmen; Jiménez Martinez, Joaquin; Candela Lledó, Lucila; González-Mazo, Eduardo; Lara-Martín, Pablo A. (2015-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Irrigation with reclaimed water is becoming a common practice in arid- and semi-arid regions as a consequence of structural water resource scarcity. This practice can lead to contamination of the vadose zone if sewage-derived ...
  • Characterization of concrete by calibrating thermo-hydraulic multiphase flow models 

    Chaparro Sánchez, Maria Carme; Saaltink, Maarten Willem; Villar Galicia, María Victoria (2015-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Evaporation tests in concrete columns have been analysed by numerical models to characterize the thermo-hydraulic properties and the processes in concrete. Two evaporation tests were performed: a column heated by a lamp ...

  • Reactive transport modeling of leaking CO2-saturated brine along a fractured pathway 

    Ahmad, Nawaz; Worman, Anders; Bottaccin Busolin, Andrea; Sánchez Vila, Francisco Javier (John Gale, 2015-11)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    One concern regarding the underground storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) is its potential leakage from reservoirs. Over short period of time, the leakage risk is related mainly to CO2 as a separate supercritical fluid phase. ...
