Vertical circulation wells can efficiently provide microorganisms with substrates needed for enhanced bioremediation. We present a travel-time based approach for modeling bioreactive transport in a flow field caused by a series of circulation wells. Mixing within the aquifer is due to the differences in sorption behavior of the reactants. Neglecting local dispersion, transport simplifies to a single one-dimensional problem with constant coefficients for each well. Recirculation is characterized… CONTINUE READING
