Abstract: Groundwater hydrologists must accurately estimate water and contaminant fluxes in aquifers in order to predict risk, regulation compliance, and contaminant attenuation. A new direct method for the simultaneous measurement of cumulative groundwater and contaminant flux in fractured rock aquifers through the use of a fractured rock passive flux meter (FRPFM) is under development. This paper identifies a sorptive material and a range of resident alcohol tracers that can be used in combination as part of the FRPFM to quantify the aforementioned fluxes. When exposed to groundwater flow, the resident alcohol tracers are eluted from the fabric at rates relative to the magnitude of the groundwater flux. In order to quantify the groundwater flux based on the removal of tracers, the partition coefficient for each tracer between water and the sorptive material must be known. This paper presents sorption isotherm curves from several laboratory experiments. These curves contribute to the determination of the final partition coefficient, KD, for each tracer when exposed to water and the selected sorptive material AC Felt 1300.
