Abstract It has been shown that the capillary state of aqueous solutions in the unsaturated zone (UZ) modifies chemical equilibria due to the decreasing capillary pressure of the whole system (isobaric scenario) or of the aqueous phase only (anisobaric scenario). Meanwhile, the role of salinity in capillary solutions has not been explicitly taken into account up to now, at least not in a manner independent to capillarity. A consistent way to do so is considered in this paper by calculating… CONTINUE READING
