SMILE is a project dealing with reactive transport.
The main goals of SMILE is
- the extension of the concept developed up till now towards inclusion of redox-reaction,
- to corroborate the chemical description of interfacial reactions via more fundamental insight in structure, stoichiometry and thermodynamic parameters of relevant surface complexes,
- to compare state of the art surface complexation in the evaluation of available experimental data,
- to extend the experimental data basis via batch- and column experiments on laboratory systems,
- to calculate smart Kd-martrices for selected redox-systems, and
- to apply the concept and verify the concept via experiment and modeling for systems that are closer to environmental systems in a critical manner.
This is supposed to pave a fundamental basis allowing to transfer the smart-Kd-concept to various geological settings. Additionally this will allow for the coupling of the concept to geochemical reactive transport codes to be initiated.
