Numerical modeling of groundwater contamination
The effectiveness of numerical models in simulating flow and behavior of contaminants in porous media has not previously been tested for complex boundary conditions encountered in most field problems. This study was undertaken to determine the effectiveness of a model describing movement of contaminants in a shallow, unconfined aquifer. The aquifer selected for use in this study is located in the Denver Basin. The numerical model used in this study consists of a finite difference form of the two dimensional flow equation and a solution of the convective dispersion equation by the method of ...
