Hydrodynamics of Time-Periodic Groundwater Flow introduces the emerging topic of periodic fluctuations in groundwater. While classical hydrology has often focused on steady flow conditions, many systems display periodic behavior due to tidal, seasonal, annual, and human influences. Describing and quantifying subsurface hydraulic responses to these influences may be challenging to those who are unfamiliar with periodically forced groundwater systems. The goal of this volume is to present a clear and accessible mathematical introduction to the basic and advanced theory of time-periodic groundwater flow, which is essential for developing a comprehensive knowledge of groundwater hydraulics and groundwater hydrology.

Volume highlights include:

  • Overview of time-periodic forcing of groundwater systems
  • Definition of the Boundary Value Problem for harmonic systems in space and time
  • Examples of 1-, 2-, and 3-dimensional flow in various media
  • Attenuation, delay, and gradients, stationary points and flow stagnation
  • Wave propagation and energy transport

Hydrodynamics of Time-Periodic Groundwater Flow presents numerous examples and exercises to reinforce the essential elements of the theoretical development, and thus is eminently well suited for self-directed study by undergraduate and graduate students. This volume will be a valuable resource for professionals in Earth and environmental sciences who develop groundwater models., including in the fields of groundwater hydrology, soil physics, hydrogeology, geoscience, geophysics, and geochemistry. Time-periodic phenomena are also encountered in fields other than groundwater flow, such as electronics, heat transport, and chemical diffusion. Thus, students and professionals in the field of chemistry, electronic engineering, and physics will also find this book useful.

Public țintă

The volume is intended to be used primarily for self–directed study by advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and by working scientists and engineers, in the earth and environmental sciences.
This reference text is suitable for well–prepared beginners in hydrogeology, geoscience and geophysics, and for those who have been introduced to periodic groundwater flow in the distant past and wish to renew their knowledge and enrich their understanding. Additionally, we hope that this book will be a useful resource for educators. The mathematical framework for time–periodic groundwater flow is structurally equivalent to that of time–periodic diffusion. Therefore, some of the theory presented in this volume may be relevant to time–periodic phenomena encountered in fields other than groundwater flow, like electrical conduction, thermal conduction, and molecular diffusion. Consequently, it is expected that students and professionals in these other fields, such as physics, chemistry and engineering will also find parts of this book useful.

[Note: Editors assume that the reader has completed university courses in multivariable calculus, linear algebra, and subsurface uid dynamics (e.g., groundwater hydraulics). Also, the reader should have a basic familiarity with complex variables, Fourier series, and partial differential equations (PDEs). Readers don′t need to know contour integration in the complex plane or Green functions.]
