Contaminant plumes with significant lateral spreading indicating transverse dispersion have been reported in the literature from many sites. At the Yucca Mountain site modeling shows that changing the value of transverse dispersivity from 0.05 to 10 m lead to wider plumes, but the effect was moderate with the length to width ratio changing from 12 to 25, and the median breakthrough time at 18 km downstream from the source changing from 980 to 3000 years.
