Stochastic hydrogeology, which emerged as a research area in the late 1970s, involves the study of subsurface, geological variability on flow and transport processes and the interpretation ofExpand
Flow and Transport in Bimodal Heterogeneous Formations
A spatial correlation model is presented for the case of a spatially distributed, bimodal attribute. This model can be used for modeling the hydraulic conductivity in sand-shale or sand-clayExpand
Soil moisture content estimation using ground-penetrating radar reflection data
Abstract Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) reflection travel time data were used to estimate changes in soil water content under a range of soil saturation conditions throughout the growing season at aExpand
Hydrogeological characterization of the south oyster bacterial transport site using geophysical data
A multidisciplinary research team has conducted a field-scale bacterial transport study within an uncontaminated sandy Pleistocene aquifer near Oyster, Virginia. The overall goal of the project wasExpand
Estimating the hydraulic conductivity at the South Oyster Site from geophysical tomographic data using Bayesian techniques based on the normal linear regression model
This study explores the use of ground penetrating radar (GPR) tomographic velocity, GPR tomographic attenuation, and seismic tomographic velocity for hydraulic conductivity estimation at the SouthExpand
Stochastic modeling of macrodispersion in heterogeneous porous media
A method for the prediction of dispersion processes of inert solutes occurring in heterogeneous porous media, is presented. Its main features are as follows: (1) The velocity field is assumed to be aExpand
HYDRO_GEN: A spatially distributed random field generator for correlated properties
This paper describes a new method for generating spatially-correlated random fields. Such fields are often encountered in hydrology and hydrogeology and in the earth sciences. The method is based onExpand
Estimation of field-scale soil hydraulic and dielectric parameters through joint inversion of GPR and hydrological data
[1] A method is described for the joint use of time-lapse ground-penetrating radar (GPR) travel times and hydrological data to estimate field-scale soil hydraulic parameters. We build upon previousExpand
Groundwater uptake by woody vegetation in a semiarid oak savanna
[1] Groundwater can serve as an important resource for woody vegetation in semiarid landscapes, particularly when soil water is functionally depleted and unavailable to plants. This study examinesExpand
Estimating flow parameter distributions using ground-penetrating radar and hydrological measurements
Methods for estimating the parameter distributions necessary for modeling fluid flow and contaminant transport in the shallow subsurface are in great demand. Soil properties such as permeability,Expand
