The random-walk method for simulating solute transport in porous media is typically based on the assumption that the velocity and velocity-dependent dispersion tensor vary smoothly in space. However, in cases where sharp interfaces separate materials with contrasting hydraulic properties, these quantities may be discontinuous. Normally, velocities are(More)
Numerical simulations of groundwater flow and chemical transport through three-dimensional heterogeneous porous media are described. The authors employ two CRAY supercomputers for different parts of the decoupled calculation: the flow field is computed on the T3D massively parallel computer, and the contaminant migration is simulated on the C90 vector(More)
Executive Summary A critical component of the State Water Resource Control Board's Groundwater Ambient Monitoring and Assessment (GAMA) Program is to assess the major threats to groundwater resources that supply drinking water to Californians (Belitz et al., 2004). Nitrate is the most pervasive and intractable contaminant in California groundwater and is(More)
The nuclear weapons testing programme of the USA has released radionuclides to the subsurface at the Nevada Test Site. One of these tests has been used to study the hydrological transport of radionuclides for over 25 years in groundwater and the deep unsaturated zone. Ten years after the weapon's test, a 16 year groundwater pumping experiment was initiated(More)
