Summary  

Experimental crushed granite column breakthrough curves, using 99Tc as spike tracer and 3H as invariant tracer, were analyzed by different linear regression techniques. Dispersity of crushed granite and the retardation factor of 99TcO4- on the crushed granite were determined simultaneously by one linear regression. Dispersity of crushed granite was also obtained with 3H as invariant tracer by the other linear regression. The dispersities found by spike source and invariant source methods are compared. Experimental results show that the dispersity found by the spike source method is close to that found by the invariant source method. This indicates that dispersity is only a characteristic of the dispersion medium.
