Scaling parameters for tracer transport

Some particles (such as nZVI) are very reactive and therefore transform quickly in the environment. It is difficult to quantify single processes, and more practical to use a simplified model relying on macroscopic descriptors (retardation factor and 1st order removal rate) that scale conservative tracer transport to NM transport.
