If aggressive laboratory NAPL mobility tests force NAPL to move out of test samples, that creates an opportunity to quantify key parameters for NAPL mobility assessment.
Fundamental parameters governing fluid flow through porous media are hydraulic conductivity, Darcy flux, and average lineal seepage v…
