Presenting at Heterogeneity Conference in Valencia (MADE site)

without comments

I will be presenting at the AGU Chapman Conference “The MADE Challenge for Groundwater Transport in Highly Heterogeneous Aquifers: Insights from 30 Years of Modeling and Characterization at the Field Scale and Promising Future Directions” website.

Details my talk at the Chapman Conference
date Monday, October 5, 2015
time 04:00 PM – 07:00 PM
location Blue Auditorium at the Research Park, located on the campus of the Universitat Politècnica de València
title of talk “Modelling Non-Linear Spatial Dependence with Applications to MADE Hydraulic Conductivity Data”
authors Claus Haslauer, Geoff Bohling

The MADE site is one of three sites world wide, where very detailed measurements of aquifer properties and solute transport movement within these aquifers were taken. The other two sites are in Borden, Canada and Cape Cod, Massachusetts. The detail of monitoring was very fine for hydrogeologic applications, e.g. via test well installations used to sample aqueous geochemical parameters, that some people argue that those wells influence the properties of the aquifer (see Figure below).
