Multi-scale characterisation of coastal sand aquifer media for contaminant transport using X-ray computed tomography

Dann, Rodney; Turner, Michael; Close, M; Knackstedt, Mark


To be able to predict contaminant transport in groundwater, an accurate conceptual and physical understanding of aquifer properties at multiple scales is required. In this study, physical and hydraulic properties of a coastal sand aquifer were derived using micro and macro X-ray computed tomography (XCT) techniques. Qualitative and quantitative data improved conceptualisation of the aquifer structure at micro and macro scale. At the macro scale (50-mm diameter by 1,500-mm long core) XCT images...[Show more]
