Abstract

More than 40 % of carbonate area in Slovenia and development of urban activities, which cause the pollution lead to more frequent researches of solute transport in fractured and karstified rocks. The laboratory experiments were made to study the behaviour (sorption) of tracer in a porous media as preliminary study for in-situ tracer experiments in fractured rocks and final modelling of mass transport. The experiments in saturated zone were carried out in the laboratory of the Institute for Mining, Geotechnology and Environment in three permeameters which were connected successively. There also existed a possibility of sampling after each permeameter. As media there were used three porous materials of differ
