02.09.2022 | New research paper on capturing glyphosate retention in aquifer sediment 

The mobility of ionizable organic contaminant (IOCs) in soils and groundwater is notoriously challenging to capture given their strong retention that cannot be reliably estimated via linear partitioning. In a new publication, Adrian along with collaborators at the University of Tübingen present a geophysics-based approach where the method spectral induced polarization (SIP) is used to monitor glyphosate (an IOC) sorption and desorption. The research highlights the ability SIP to capture solid-bound concentration changes during the transport of glyphosate through natural aquifer sediment and the potential of non-invasive approaches to help advance IOC monitoring approaches.
