The Colloid Formation and Migration (CFM) Project is an international research project for the investigation of colloid formation/bentonite erosion, colloid migration, and colloid-associated radionuclide transport, relevant to both NBS and EBS areas of UFDC. This collaborative project is one of several experimental R&D projects associated with the Grimsel Test Site (GTS) in the Swiss Alps, a URL situated in sparsely fractured crystalline host rock (http://www.grimsel.com/). Colloid-related R&D comprises in situ migration experiments conducted between boreholes in a fracture shear zone; these are complemented by laboratory and modeling studies.
The main R&D objectives, relevant to both natural system and engineered barrier issues, are as follows:
