Comparison of the Glover-Balmer solution with a calibrated groundwater model to estimate aquifer-stream interactions in an irrigated alluvial valley
In many alluvial valleys wherein streams are hydraulically connected to the aquifer system, understanding and quantifying the impact of aquifer stresses (e.g. pumping, injection, recharge) on streamflow is of primary importance. Due to their relative simplicity and straightforward application, analytical models such as the Glover-Balmer solution often are employed to quantify these impacts. However, the predictive capacity of such models in intensively-irrigated systems, wherein canals, spatially-varying irrigation application patterns, and spatially-variable aquifer characteristics are often ...
