Thirteen springs were identified, mostly located within a 115 m reach, five discharged from the right bank and eight from the left bank. To quantify groundwater discharge, a new approach was developed in which

  • Accelerating Streamline Tracking in Groundwater Flow Modeling on GPUs
    Groundwater (IF 2.322) Pub Date : 2019-11-20
    Xiaohui Ji; Mulan Luo; Xu‐Sheng Wang

    Streamline simulation in groundwater flow modeling is a time‐consuming process when a large number of streamlines are analyzed. We develop a parallelization method on graphics processing units (GPUs) for the semi‐analytical particle tracking algorithm developed by Pollock (1988). Compute Unified Device Architecture was used to implement the parallel method. Forward and backward tracking of a streamline

  • Consequences of Groundwater‐Model Vertical Discretization in Risk‐Based Decision‐Making
    Groundwater (IF 2.322) Pub Date : 2019-11-20
    Jeremy T. White; Matthew J. Knowling; Catherine R. Moore

    One of the first and most important decisions facing practitioners when constructing a numerical groundwater model is vertical discretization. Several factors will influence this decision, such as the conceptual model of the system and hydrostratigraphy, data availability, resulting computational burden, and the purpose of the modeling analysis. Using a coarse vertical discretization is an attractive

  • Pay the PIED Piper: Guidelines to Visualize Large Geochemical Datasets on Piper Diagrams
    Groundwater (IF 2.322) Pub Date : 2019-11-11
    Christopher J. Russoniello; Laura K. Lautz

    The Piper diagram has increased in popularity since its 1944 introduction and is now one of the most familiar and effective tools in the hydrogeologist's toolbox. Within the Piper diagram, three points on three related plots fully display the major ionic species of a water sample. Recently the size and availability of datasets have increased as additional field measurements and modeling results are

  • Episodic and Continuous Recharge Estimation from High‐Resolution Well Records
    Groundwater (IF 2.322) Pub Date : 2019-11-09
    Timothy T. Eaton

    Water table fluctuation (WTF) methods are a primary and well‐established way to determine groundwater recharge based on the direct response of the water table to precipitation input. An emerging complexity of recharge is whether it occurs as an episodic and transient process, or a continuous steady‐state process, however, most studies have not focused on these short‐term vs. long‐term timescales, in

    The potential environmental impacts on subsurface water resources induced by unconventional gas production are still under debate. Solving the controversy regarding the potential adverse effects of gas leakages on groundwater resources is therefore crucial. In this work, an interesting real‐world case is presented in order to give further insight into methane multiphase and transport behavior in the

  • An Approximation of Inner Boundary Conditions for Wells Intersecting Highly Conductive Structures
    Groundwater (IF 2.322) Pub Date : 2019-11-08
    Markus Giese; Thomas Reimann; Rudolf Liedl; Benoit Dewandel; Jean‐Christophe Maréchal; Martin Sauter

    Inner boundary conditions describe the interaction of groundwater wells with the surrounding aquifer during pumping and are associated with well‐skin damage that limits water production and water derived from wellbore storage. Pumping test evaluations of wells during immediate and early time flow require assignment of inner boundary conditions. Originally, these concepts were developed for vertical

    In recent decades, increased extraction of groundwater for human and agriculture consumption has led to a substantial drop in groundwater level in large areas of across the world. Declining groundwater levels is a serious problem in itself and has multiple economic, social, cultural, political, security‐related, and environmental externalities. The negative economic‐environmental externalities of overextraction

    Groundwater (IF 2.322) Pub Date : 2019-09-13
    Lisa M. Wild; Arno Rein; Florian Einsiedl

    Intense farming is often associated with the excessive use of manure or fertilizers and the subsequent deterioration of the groundwater quality in many aquifers worldwide. Stable isotopes of dissolved nitrate (δ15N and δ18O) are widely used to determine sources of nitrate contamination and denitrification processes in groundwater but are often difficult to interpret. Thus, Monte Carlo simulations were

    Groundwater interactions with surface water and sewers in an urban setting are complex, and classic hydrogeological approaches must be combined with anthropogenic elements to characterize them. The level of detail needed to understand these interactions is illustrated by the analysis of an urban subcatchment in the megacity of Shenzhen in southern China that has had a drastic urban expansion in the

  • A Search for Freshwater in the Saline Aquifer of Coastal Bangladesh
    Groundwater (IF 2.322) Pub Date : 2019-09-11
    Chelsea N. Peters; George M. Hornberger

    In the polder region of coastal Bangladesh, shallow groundwater is primarily brackish with unpredictable occurrence of freshwater pockets. Delta building processes, including the codeposition of fresh‐to‐saline porewater and sediments, have formed the shallow aquifer. Impermeable clay facies and the lack of a topographical gradient limit the flow of groundwater and its mixing with surface water so

    Protection of fens–wetlands dependent on groundwater discharge–requires characterization of groundwater sources and stresses. Because instrumentation and numerical modeling of fens is labor intensive, easy‐to‐apply methods that model fen distribution and their vulnerability to development are desirable. Here we demonstrate that fen areas can be simulated using existing steady‐state MODFLOW models when
