Part of: Artificial Recharge of Ground Water:

Abstract: Artificial recharge of saline aquifers by deep well injection of treated effluents is attractive, as it provides a solution to an environmental problem, and possibly creates groundwater resources that can be useful in the future. However dispersion and haline convection may jeopardize such ideas. The present paper concerns the mechanisms of dispersion and haline convection and methods by which they can simply be quantified.
