The transport of viruses in unsaturated porous media has been a subject of great interest in recent years because of the enhanced removal of these microorganisms compared with saturated conditions. We studied the transport of bacteriophages MS2 and ϕX174, used as surrogate pathogenic viruses, at various water contents and solution chemistries in terms of pH and ionic strength (IS). The objective w ...
