This study is devoted to exploring the dynamic / transfers of Tritium along the Rhine River (with the distance ±40 km from Fessenheim NPP) and the Grand Canal, and to gaining first data into physico-chemical parameters that are expected to affect the transfers in these aquatic systems, i.e., pH, nanoparticles and organic matter. This report will be divided into three main sections as follows: analysis of waters in the Rhine and Grand Canal Alsace systems : water chemistry and tritium concentrations; analysis of nanoparticles : occurrence, zeta potential, nature, and influence on tritium in the systems; experiments on sediment collected in the Rhine river to get a first understanding of sediment adsorption capacity towards tritium in the presence and absence of organic matter.
