One of my M. Sc. female students has worked on it, years ago, to get the physicochemical parameters needed for three sediments.
The estimation of the invloved parameters is experimental (it cannot be obtained otherwise.)
The magnitude of the involved parameters is widely different according to the type of the sediment.
When the parameters are known, a further step may be developed in order to estimate rates of solutes' (=salts and contaminants) transport with water that is flowing into and out from such sediments.
I love that setup.
