Exchangeable Ions, Fracture Volume, and Specific Surface Area in Fractured Crystalline Rocks

By Warren W. Wood, Thomas F. Kraemer, and Allen Shapiro


A new approach is described in which a combination of a brine injection field test and radiometric laboratory examination of rock samples can provide critical parameters of exchangeable cations, fracture volume, and specific surface area required for solute transport simulation in fractured rocks.
