Abstract

The quantitative analysis of the transport of lithium at Cape Cod is presented which identifies the factors that contributed significantly to its observed nonideal transport. The transport behavior observed during the first 250 days, corresponding to a transport distance of 60 m, was predicted reasonably well by the simulation that incorporated spatially variable hydraulic conductivity. The results of the analysis suggest that nonlinear sorption and variable water chemistry are the primary factors responsible for the nonuniform displacement of the lithium plume, with rate-limited sorption/desorption having minimal impact.
