Understanding Variation in Partition Coefficient, Kd, Values
This three volume report describes the conceptualization, measurement and use of the partition (or distribution) coefficient, Kd, parameter. It describes the geochemical aqueous solution and sorbent properties that are most important in controlling adsorption/retardation behavior of selected contaminants.
These technical reports are designed for EPA and other organizations who are responsible for site remediation and waste management decisions. The three volume report was a collaborative effort of EPA's Office of Emergency and Remedial Response, Office of Radiation and Indoor Air, and the Department of Energy's Office of Environmental Restoration.
