Particulate matter can play a vital role in delivering nutrients and micro organisms to groundwater. This paper uses bacteriophage and microsphere surrogates to study the delivery of particles to the subsurface and demonstrates the potential role that pH and ionic strength can play in limiting particle mobility.
