Multicomponent reaction transport models used to study early diagenesis in marine systems are typically limited by rudimentary descriptions of bioirrigation 201enhanced solute transport202. It was the goal of this project to develop better representations of bioirrigation, through independent ecologically-based stochastic and chemically-based inverse modeling approaches. These complementary approaches provide tools for independent, objective assessments of the depth-dependence of transport intensities in coastal sediments, and the influence of bioirrigation on biogeochemical cycling in these sediments.
