Particle tracking using dynamic water level data
MetadataShow full item record
Movement of fluid particles about historic subsurface releases and through well fields is often governed by dynamic subsurface water levels. Factors influencing temporal changes in water levels include changes in river stage, tidal fluctuation, seasonal transpiration from trees and pumping of wells. Motivations for tracking the movement of fluid particles include tracking the fate of subsurface contaminants and resolving the fate of water stored in subsurface aquifers. This research provides novel methods for predicting the movement of subsurface particles relying on dynamic water level data ...
