Orle´ans, France In recent years, the scientific community has seen a remarkable surge of interest in the properties of clays as they apply in a variety of natural and engineered settings In part, this renewed interest is traceable to the very property that, in the past, had relegated clay-rocks to a minor status in hydrology, namely their low hydraulic conductivity While clay-rocks might be largely bypassed by contaminant plumes in groundwater aquifers and by saline fluids in sedimentary basins, their low permeability allows them to play key roles in several important subsurface energy-related applications, including the long-term storage of nuclear wastes in geologic repositories and CO2 sequestration in subsurface geologic formations In these applications, the low transmissivity of clay-rich geologic formations or engineered clay barriers provides at least part of the basis for isolation of radionuclide contaminants and CO2 from the biosphere Clay materials are an important part of the multibarrier systems for nuclear waste storage under consideration worldwide, but their performance must be demonstrated on the timescale of hundreds to thousands of years (Altmann, 2008; Busch et al., 2008; Chapman and Hooper, 2012; Armitage et al., 2013; Neuzil, 2013) The low permeability of clay-rich shales also explains why hydrocarbon resources are not easily exploited from these formations, thus requiring in many cases special procedures such as hydraulic fracturing in order to extract them In addition to their low permeability, clay minerals have other properties of interest in these applications, including their very high adsorption capacity (Chapter 2, in this volume) The strong adsorption and resulting retardation of many contaminants by clay minerals make them ideal for use in natural or engineered barrier systems, particularly where there is a desire to improve confidence in the safety of waste isolation beyond reliance on slower transport rates alone In addition, the high pH/redox buffering capacity (Chapter 3, in this volume) and slow dissolution kinetics of clay minerals (Chapter 4, in this Natural and Engineered Clay Barriers volume), along with the slow diffusive mass transport in clay-rich media (Chapter 6, in this volume), make clay-rocks and engineered clay barriers remarkably stable under the chemical perturbations generated by high partial pressure of CO2 or by the presence of concrete, steel, and other exogenous materials (Chapter 5, in this volume) While clay materials offer some striking benefits in these and other applications, their properties and behavior under relevant conditions remain only partly understood With the exception of the work by Bredehoft and Papadopolous (1980), Bredehoft et al (1983), and Neuzil (1982, 1986, 1993, 1994), the hydrodynamics of clay-rocks had, until these last two decades, attracted only limited attention from hydrogeologists As discussed by Neuzil (2013), flow through clay-rich formations may not be adequately described by Darcy’s Law In fact, engineered clay barriers and clay-rocks show a remarkable array of macroscale properties such as high swelling pressure, very low permeability, semipermeable membrane properties, and a strong coupling between geochemical, mechanical, and osmotic properties (Malusis et al., 2003; Malusis and Shackelford, 2004) These properties are thought to arise from the distinct geochemical, transport, and mechanical properties of the interlayer (nano)pores of swelling clay minerals such as Na+-montmorillonite and other smectites (Chapters 8e10, in this volume) Clay-rocks typically show a nonlinear dependence of the flow field on the pore pressure, particularly at low pressure gradients and flow rates where threshold behavior prevails Much of this anomalous behavior is traceable to chemical, electrical potential, and thermal gradients that result in nonconjugate driving forces for hydrodynamic flow and molecular diffusion The prediction of gas migration through clay barriers (e.g., CO2 from carbon sequestration storage, or H2 generated by radiolysis or corrosion of steel containers) is a difficult challenge as well because of the complex interplay of the gas transport processes with the mechanical properties and the pore structure of clay-rocks (Chapter 7, in this volume) Even where hydrodynamic flow through clay-rocks is limited or suppressed altogether, diffusion offers another possible means for transport that must be evaluated This task is rendered difficult by the incomplete understanding of the microstructure and surface electrostatics of clay-rich materials, such that multiple models exist with very different underlying concepts/hypotheses on the diffusion and semipermeable properties of the clay nanopores (Chapter 6, in this volume) The development of predictive mesoscale models of water, gas, and solute mass fluxes in nanoporous media is in fact a long-standing challenge in the geosciences The behavior of nanoporous clay environments is complicated by the fact that the pore structure of clay materials is heterogeneous, such that water and ions can be present in bulk-liquid-like water, on external surfaces of clay particles, and in nano-scale confinement in clay interlayers (Chapter 1, in this volume) To understand and predict the coupling phenomena, it is often Introduction necessary to examine the physical processes at the pore scale, upscale the physical laws to the continuum scale, and compare continuum scale model predictions to geophysical or other macroscopic observables A range of upscaling strategies has been developed to predict the various properties of interest for clay materials (Chapters 8e11, in this volume) This volume opens on the surface and chemical properties of clay minerals and clay barriers (Chapters 1e4) Then, it focuses on mass fluxes through clay barriers (Chapters 5e7) and on coupled thermoehydroemechanical processes (Chapters and 9) The end of the volume is focused on upscaling modeling strategies and their applications (Chapters 10 and 11) A large part of the current understanding of clay barrier properties has been gained through studies conducted on radioactive waste storage systems, a fact that is reflected in most of the chapters However, the recent breakthroughs in the field and the challenges that remain are not limited to this application For instance, the development of recovery techniques for gas and light liquid hydrocarbons from shale has created a new series of challenges for the clay scientist community Hopefully, this volume can provide a solid basis to the clay and nonclay scientist communities for the identification of current understanding, recent breakthroughs, and the challenges that remain in the field of clay barriers Note on Terminology and Abbreviations For the purpose of consistency of clay terminology, the

Recherche sur la Matie`re Divise´e, Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), Orle´ans, France Clay barriers are at the heart of several of today’s most important energyrelated economic and societal challenges, including solid waste management, carbon capture and storage, geologic storage of high-level radioactive waste, exploration for unconventional gas and oil resources, and, by extension, climate change The science of clay barriers is a fascinating research area for the range of techniques, theory, and applications that it encompasses The authors of the chapters in this volume have striven to emphasize the most important knowledge related to clay barrier properties The resulting overview is certainly not comprehensive, because of the number of processes and scales that must be taken into account However, the editors believe that the present volume provides a thorough introduction to the key questions and challenges that must be overcome in order to ensure future breakthroughs in the science of clay barriers The primary function of clay barrierseconfinementeis ensured by three remarkable properties: their low permeability to gas and water, the two carrier phases by which pollutants migrate; the low diffusivity of dissolved species in the pore network, which limits mass transfer and; the high retention capacity of clay minerals, which further limits the mobility of many inorganic and organic pollutants The last property has been extensively studied in order to obtain quantitative information regarding the amount of pollutant that can be sequestered in clay barriers at in situ physical and chemical conditions In parallel, spectrometric measurements have made it possible to unravel various uptake mechanisms that range from adsorption on the clay mineral surfaces, to cation exchange and surface complexation, to the incorporation of metals in the structure of existing or neoformed clay mineral layers In the case of organic and inorganic anionic compounds, there is a need for predictive models of adsorption that can be generalized to different clay minerals and chemical conditions Effective modeling tools to describe the adsorption 419 420 Summary and Perspective of organic compounds, whether empirical or theoretical, are still lacking, especially with regard to situations where adsorption is characterized by significant hysteresis or strong competition of different species for the same adsorption sites For inorganic cationic compounds, effective and predictive adsorption models have been developed that cover a large range of chemical conditions (pH and ionic strength) However, these models remain empirical in nature and their link to the fundamental properties of clay mineral surfaces is not entirely clear Additional improvement in the characterization of reactive surface sites and their immediate environment, including the structure of clay mineral edge surfaces, the properties of interfacial water, and the details of surface charge screening by counter-ion adsorption and co-ion exclusion in the diffuse layer, is likely necessary to reconcile existing adsorption models with the properties of clay mineral surfaces Knowledge of in situ chemical conditions in clay barriers (i.e., the chemical conditions in pore water) can be combined with retention models in order to determine whether conditions are favorable or unfavorable for the mitigation of a given contaminant Fortunately, reliable experimental and modeling methods exist to characterize and understand pore water chemistry However, among the parameters of interest, in situ redox conditions remain challenging to characterize, and the models available now are not yet fully capable of predicting the thermodynamic or kinetic controls on redox reactions in clay media The uncertainties in redox conditions limit the precision with which predictions can be made on the retention of redox sensitive species or on the fate of redox mediated degradable compounds Diffusive mass fluxes of solute species in clay barriers are usually interpreted within the framework of Fickian diffusion laws, which state that the diffusion rate is linearly proportional to the concentration gradients of individual species In porous clay materials, these diffusion rates are augmented with empirical parameters determined experimentally (diffusion coefficient, rock capacity factor) In principle, these macroscopic parameters can be predicted from knowledge of the microstructure of clay materials and of the fundamental phenomena that occur in individual pores (such as the structure of the electrical double layer and the mobility of water and ions near clay mineral surfaces) Important advances have been made on both of these topics with the aid of high-resolution microscopy and high-performance computational techniques (molecular, coarse-grained, and continuum scale modeling) However, much remains to be done The characterization of the pore network at the nanometer scale is a significant challenge and the numerical simulation techniques available at the smallest scale remain limited to very simple systems compared to the natural systems of interest These limitations partly explain the coexistence of many models of diffusion in clay barriers based on very different representations of the processes at the pore scale Similarly, complex coupled processes must be taken into account to explain why Darcy’s law does not consistently describe fluid flow in clay-rocks Numerical methods allowing Summary and Perspective 421 for the coupling between chemical potential, electrical potential, and thermal gradient are clearly necessary for the purposes of accurate fluid and solute transport calculations in this context In addition, multiscale experimental and modeling approaches are necessary to build conceptually robust and well-parameterized models With regard to gas migration in clay materials, our understanding of the fundamental physics controlling gas transport has increased in the last decade, but the complex interplay between gas diffusion, viscous flow, and mechanically induced changes in pore structure makes it a challenge to develop mechanistic numerical models Recent development in pore network nanoscale imaging will certainly facilitate future breakthroughs in modeling gas transport at pore to macroscopic scales At the larger scale of a geologic formation or a waste disposal site, upscaling is necessary that also takes into account the large-scale heterogeneity and anisotropy of the media of interest In addition to their short-term confinement properties, clay barriers must have a demonstrated stability (both chemical and mechanical) over long time scales Clay minerals are resistant to alteration over a broad range of conditions because of their low dissolution kinetics but also because of the slow rate of diffusive mass transport in clay materials and because of the high chemical buffering capacity of clay minerals and accessory minerals in clay-rocks that limits the perturbations of the local chemical system Dissolution rates are enhanced at low and high pH values and are strongly dependent on the deviation from equilibrium Although empirical relationships are readily available to predict dissolution rates as a function of conditions, a fully consistent theory of crystal dissolution/precipitation for clay minerals remains to be developed In this regard, the definition of a reliable proxy for the reactive surface area of dissolving and precipitating clay mineral remains a challenging issue In the final analysis, it will be necessary to tackle the issue of the applicability to the field scale of dissolution rates obtained in laboratory conditions that are not fully representative of in situ conditions (dispersed particles in laboratory experiment vs compact material at in situ conditions) The development of microscopic and spectrometric techniques with atomic resolution should help identify fundamental mechanisms (at the scale of the reactive sites) in order to overcome these challenges and build more mechanistic models At the scale of the barrier itself, observations and the results of larger scale modeling have begun to converge on the identification of mineralogical alteration fronts that are highly localized regardless of the alteration process involved (e.g., clay/cement or clay/iron), with the exception of redox perturbations that remain poorly understood Significant pH variations also should be restricted to a narrow zone given the high pH buffer capacity of the clay materials These observations suggest that large scale disaggregation of clay barriers due to chemical alteration is unlikely However, the hydrological and mechanical properties of the altered zone could change dramatically with dissolution of primary and precipitation of secondary minerals These changes 422 Summary and Perspective can lead to porosity opening or clogging, a phenomenon that has been repeatedly observed in laboratory samples and natural analogues at all of the spatial and temporal scales investigated The prediction of these processes at the larger spatial and temporal scales is made difficult by the scale dependence of the results predicted by the numerical models developed to date The prediction in space and time of the coupling of chemical, hydrologic, and thermomechanical clay barrier properties is a formidable challenge that can be overcome only by integrating scientists from various disciplinary fields in the pursuit of these common objectives For all of the challenges discussed above, multiscale modeling is necessary to overcome the current limitations in process understanding and prediction The development of new microscopic and spectrometric techniques together with innovative sample preparation procedures is a necessary step to characterize clay sample structures and heterogeneities at the relevant scale where fundamental processes must be understood and modeled For large-scale applications, the development of highly coupled continuum scale models taking into account large scale heterogeneities is essential for progress to be made These models must be based on rigorous upscaling procedures that take advantage of recent advances in computational methods and hardware, building on a range of macroscopic experimental observables and measurements that will serve as the basis for predicting the scale and time dependence of clay barrier properties
