Creator Wheatcraft, Stephen W
Subject Groundwater flow -- Mathematical models. Sewage disposal in the ground -- Mathematical models.
Description Waste effluent injected into an aquifer saturated with denser ambient brackish or salt water experiences a buoyant lift. As a result, the effluent migrates both outward from the well and upward in response to the combined effects of injection head and buoyant force. After the injection process has begun, several phenomena can affect the density, shape, and distribution in space and time of the resulting buoyant plume. The most important of these include convection and mechanical dispersion...
