Unsteady 1D flow in unconfined nonuniform aquifers

Onder, H
Banna, SM
A one-dimensional groundwater now occurring in a finite, unconfined, nonuniform aquifer, which consists in two different regions, is considered. The aquifer is limited on one side by a flood channel and by an impervious formation on the other side. The flow occurs as a result of a sudden drop (or a rise) in the water stage of the flood channel. The now is investigated by two approaches; experimentally in a sandbox model in the laboratory and numerically using a digital model based on finite differences. The results are presented in the form of dimensionless graphs that represent the variation of the dimensionless drawdowns in the first and second regions of the aquifer, and the dimensionless bank storage as a function of dimensionless time. The results of experimental investigation are in a reasonable agreement with those of the numerical investigation. except for early time. The deviation at early time is due to the fact that Dupuit assumptions are not satisfied. The results of the present work are also compared with those of the analytical results. This comparison shows also a good agreement, except at early time where the Dupuit assumptions are not satisfied.

The effect of gas production from deeper conventional gas reservoirs on shallower gas hydrate layer stability: A case study in the conditions of the Sakarya gas field, Western Black Sea
Aydın, Hakkı; Merey, Şükrü (Elsevier BV, 2021-6)
Gas hydrate deposits are generally found in the shallow deepwater regions where continuous permafrost exists. The presence of water, methane and thermodynamic conditions (low temperature and high pressure) is critical for gas hydrate accumulation. Disturbing thermodynamic conditions such as depressurizing and thermal treatment are the primary processes for gas hydrate dissociation. In this study, we investigate the stability of a shallow depth gas hydrate layer in the conditions of conventional gas producti...
Determination of potential groundwater discharge zones into a Salt Lake using remote sensing techniques and in situ measurements
Kılıç, Ecenur; Yılmaz, Koray Kamil; Süzen, Mehmet Lütfi (2015-04-17)
Groundwater and surface water are integral components of the hydrologic system with strong feedback mechanisms and hence should be treated as a single resource. Existence of groundwater discharge into lakes is a very significant factor that affects both the water quantity of the lake as well as its ecological and biological diversity. The degree of interaction is more significant for shallow lakes because of their increased vulnerability due to limited volume and rapid changes in the extent and duration of ...
Effects of precipitation recharge and artificial discharge on salt water-fresh water interface movement in selçuk sub-basin: climatic indications
Aykanat, Gökben; Çamur, Mehmet Zeki; Department of Geological Engineering (2011)
Fluctuations in temperature and precipitation amounts due to climate change influence recharge rate of groundwater. Any variations in the amount of precipitation recharge and artificial discharge directly affect groundwater level and so the salt water intrusion rate in the aquifers, which are in contact with sea water. The purpose of this study is to determine the overall historical precipitation recharge trend in Selçuk sub-basin and to detect whether there is a decrease or increase in recharge amounts due...
Natural Attenuation of Nonvolatile Contaminants in the Capillary Fringe
Kurt, Zöhre; Spain, Jim C. (2016-09-20)
When anoxic polluted groundwater encounters the overlying vadose zone an oxic/anoxic interface is created, often near the capillary fringe. Biodegradation of volatile contaminants in the capillary fringe can prevent vapor migration. In contrast, the biodegradation of nonvolatile contaminants in the vadose zone has received comparatively little attention. Nonvolatile compounds do not cause vapor intrusion, but they still move with the groundwater and are major contaminants. Aniline (AN) and diphenylamine (DP...
Full waveform inversion for seismic velocity and anelastic losses in heterogeneous structures
Askan Gündoğan, Ayşegül; Bielak, Jacobo; Ghattas, Omar (Seismological Society of America (SSA), 2007-12-01)
We present a least-squares optimization method for solving the nonlinear full waveform inverse problem of determining the crustal velocity and intrinsic attenuation properties of sedimentary valleys in earthquake-prone regions. Given a known earthquake source and a set of seismograms generated by the source, the inverse problem is to reconstruct the anelastic properties of a heterogeneous medium with possibly discontinuous wave velocities. The inverse problem is formulated as a constrained optimization prob...
