AbstractAdvective trapping occurs when solute enters low velocity zones in heterogeneous porous media. Classical local modelling approaches combine the impact of slow advection and diffusion into a hydrodynamic dispersion coefficient and many temporally non-local approaches lump these mechanisms into a single memory function. This joint treatment makes parameterization difficult and thus prediction of large-scale transport a challenge. Here, we investigate the mechanisms of advective trapping and their impact on transport in media composed of a high conductivity background and isolated low permeability inclusions. Breakthrough curves show that effective transport changes from a streamtube-like behaviour to genuine random trapping as the degree of disorder of the inclusion arrangement increases. We upscale this behaviour using a Lagrangian view point, in which idealized solute particles transition over a fixed distance at random advection times combined with Poissonian advective trapping events. We discuss the mathematical formulation of the upscaled model in the continuous time random walk and mobile–immobile mass transfer frameworks, and derive a model for large-scale solute non-Fickian dispersion. These findings give new insight into transport in highly heterogeneous media.
