The key foci of this project are rates and mechanisms of biogenic uraninite corrosion, the primary mechanism for uranium re-release to the subsurface from this material. Biogenic uraninite emplaced and retrieved from Rifle wells is being characterized using a suite of structure and reactivity measurement techniques to quantify these reactions and better understand processes that are essential to geochemical uranium transport models.
