In many components of the realm, groundwater assets are below expanding possibility from starting to be calls for, wasteful use, and illness. to stand the problem, stable making plans and administration practices are wanted. A key to the administration of groundwater is the power to version the stream of fluids and contaminants within the subsurface. the aim of this ebook is to build conceptual and mathematical types that could give you the info required for making judgements linked to the administration of groundwater assets, and the remediation of infected aquifers.
The easy technique of this booklet is to correctly describe the underlying physics of groundwater circulation and solute shipping in heterogeneous porous media, beginning on the microscopic point, and to scrupulously derive their mathematical illustration on the macroscopic degrees. The well-posed, macroscopic mathematical versions are formulated for saturated, unmarried part movement, in addition to for unsaturated and multiphase circulate, and for the delivery of unmarried and a number of chemical species. Numerical types are awarded and desktop codes are reviewed, as instruments for fixing the types. the matter of seawater intrusion into coastal aquifers is tested and modeled. the problems of uncertainty in version enter info and output are addressed. The publication concludes with a bankruptcy at the administration of groundwater assets. even if one of many major ambitions of this ebook is to build mathematical versions, the volume of arithmetic required is stored minimum.
- such a lot complete ebook on mathematical modeling of groundwater circulation and contaminant transport
- Deep perception into the physics on the microscopic point and its description as averaged processes
- Addresses uncertainty and administration issues
- Written by means of the most hugely stated authors of groundwater books (Dynamics of Fluids in Porous Media, and Hydraulics of Groundwater)
Graduate and higher point undergraduate scholars who're attracted to such themes as groundwater, water assets and environmental engineering; of curiosity to researchers, to scientists, and to pros who face the necessity to construct and resolve versions of circulate and contaminant shipping within the subsurface.
