The effect of physical heterogeneity on the electrokinetic (EK) transport of nitrate, an electron acceptor frequently used for anaerobic biodegradation, was investigated experimentally within saturated granular porous media comprising two layers of high and low hydraulic conductivity (K) material. Two hypotheses were tested: firstly, that the presence of… (More)
