Estimating the spatial distribution of a first-order solute decay constant in groundwater systems
Numerical models capable of simulating solute reactive transport in groundwater systems are often used as tools to assess the state of contaminated aquifer systems. Accurately simulating the fate and transport of solutes, however, is often hindered by a lack of information regarding the chemical reactions parameters that govern the fate of the solute. Furthermore, field and laboratory methods used to determine these parameters are often labor- and resource-intensive, and often cannot be translated to numerical models due to differences in scale, especially for largescale aquifer systems. In this ...
