Mixing and reaction kinetics in porous media: an experimental pore scale quantification.
We propose a new experimental set up to characterize mixing and reactive transport in porous media with a high spatial resolution at the pore scale. The analogous porous medium consists of aExpand

Irrigation return flow and nitrate leaching under different crops and irrigation methods in Western Mediterranean weather conditions
Agriculture constitutes a major source of non-point pollution (e.g., nitrates) where overall water resources are affected, in particular, aquifers. Intensive agricultural practices take place inExpand

Groundwater modelling with limited data sets: the Chari–Logone area (Lake Chad Basin, Chad)
One of the most important issues for water resource management is developing strategies for groundwater modelling that are adaptable to data scarcity. These strategies are particularly important inExpand

Pore-scale mechanisms for the enhancement of mixing in unsaturated porous media and implications for chemical reactions: MIXING IN UNSATURATED POROUS MEDIA
Porous media in which different fluid phases coexist are common in nature (e.g., vadose zone and gas-oil reservoirs). In partially saturated porous media, the intricate spatial distributions of theExpand

Transport of nano- and microplastic through unsaturated porous media from sewage sludge application.
Wastewater treatment plants have been identified as important hubs for small particulate plastic, down to the nanometer scale, from urban areas to the environment. The reuse of sludge as fertilizerExpand
