Examination of solute transport in highly heterogeneous media at the Macrodispersion Experiment (MADE) Site, Columbus, MS
The Macrodispersion Experiment (MADE) Site in Columbus, MS was developed to examine the reliability and predictive power of macrodispersion transport theories, used to describe the hydrodynamic spreading of solutes at the field-scale. Prior to the initial investigation reported in 1992, it was believed that the classical advection dispersion equation (ADE) was a valid model for solute transport if the subsurface hydraulic conductivity (K) was sufficiently characterized. However, the injected plume at the MADE Site displayed anomalous behavior and the classical ADE was unable to capture the early ...
