Plume Movement and Mixing in Heterogeneous Aquifer

From Design to Remediation: The Vroom Site

Similarity Solutions of Starting Jets and Starting Plumes
Similarity solutions of the starting jets and the starting plumes are obtained using a one dimensional model based on the top-hat profiles and the symmetry assumption for the velocity...

An Experimental Model Using a Graphical User Interface
This paper describes a program named Plume which runs on a microcomputer. The intended function of the program is to enhance an investigator's understanding of the estuarine environment...

Pollutant Transport Modelling in Large River Plumes
The Niagara River plume in Lake Ontario and the Fraser River plume in the Strait of Georgia are of similar spatial dimensions, and arise from rivers with comparable discharge. Both rivers...

Mixing and Dispersion Processes in the Vicinity of an Ocean Outfall System in Southern California
Ocean wastewater plumes are important for the disposal of municipal wastes in Southern California. These plumes, which are discharged from sanitation systems, can be distinguished in the...

Impact of Grid Orientation on Groundwater Contaminant Transport Modeling Using the U.S.G.S. MOC Model
The U.S.G.S. method of characteristics (MOC) model was enhanced to include the input of measured contaminant concentrations, the calculation of computed and measured contaminant plume...

Buoyant, Miscible Plume in Heterogeneous Aquifer
A three-dimensional, particle tracking scheme is used to compute the trajectory of and spread about the centroid of a mass slug added to steady flow through an infinite aquifer with an...

Visualization Studies of Dense Leachate Plumes in Porous Media
In this paper, a series of flow visualization experiments investigating the behavior of dense leachate plumes are described. These experiments were performed in various flow containers...

Concentration Measurements in Dense Leachate Plumes Using a Gamma Radiation System
An automated, nonintrusive technique is discussed that determines salt concentrations in dense leachate plumes. The dense plumes were introduced from a line source into a relatively narrow...

The Enhancement of Air-Sea Gas Exchange by Oceanic Whitecapping
The hypothesis that oceanic whitecaps and the accompanying buoyant bubble plumes greatly enhance the air-sea transfer coefficient of gases subject to liquid phase control has recently...

Water Surface Flow and Exchange Induced by a Bubble Plume
Aeration is a common method to increase dissolved oxygen in the water of stratified (or non-stratified) lakes. In this method compressed air is injected at some depth, and gas is transferred...

Correlation of Fractional Foam Coverage with Gas Transport Rates
Because breaking waves are believed to increase the flux of gases across the air/sea interface, it may be possible to correlate air/sea gas transport velocities with whitecap coverage....

Second Natural-Gradient Tracer Experiment
The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) has begun a second large-scale groundwater field experiment at the Columbus Groundwater Research test site in Mississippi. This research is a continuation...

Plume Management for Groundwater Remediation
Site-specific data for four sites were compiled to evaluate the effectiveness of pumping and treating contaminated groundwater and recharging the treated groundwater to the surficial aquifer....

The Dispersion of Ocean Outfall Plumes: Physical and Biological Dynamics
The discharge of municipal wastewater into the coastal ocean through large ocean outfalls is an important component in managing sewage wastes generated by heavily populated urban areas...

Three-Dimensional Plume Dynamics in the Vadose Zone: PORFLO-3 Modeling of a Defense Waste Leak at Hanford
In 1973, approximately 450 m3 of liquid containing radioactive and chemical wastes leaked from the 241-T-106 single-shell tank into the vadose zone...

Thermal Plumes from Staged Diffusers into a Uniform Quiescent Environment
The behavior of thermal plumes from staged multiport diffusers was investigated experimentally. The three-dimensional temperature distribution was measured by scanning thermistor rakes...

Iona Outfall Plume Characterization Study
Field studies were conducted in August 1988 to verify the performance of the new deep sea outfall for the Greater Vancouver Regional District (GVRD) Iona Island Sewerage Treatment Plant...

Physical Modeling Study of the Niagara River Plume
A rotating laboratory facility is used to study the dynamics of the Niagara River discharge into Lake Ontario. The current tests are limits to buoyant discharge conditions, which occur...
