  • Introduction

    This Special Issue on “Physical Modelling in Groundwater Hydrology”, focuses on recent advances and future perspectives of groundwater studies, including, but not limited to:
    Fundamental investigations addressing multi-phase and multi-component interactions using various experimental techniques, mathematical and numerical modeling of physical mechanisms, management strategies, and experience learned from case studies.
    Monitoring and predictions of groundwater flow, solute and heat transfer at different spatial and temporal scales, hydro geochemistry, well hydraulics, hydraulic fracturing, karst, freshwater-saltwater interactions, groundwater contamination, remediation and protection.
    Effect of heterogeneity on dynamic and distribution of contaminants, calibrating flow and transport models, and uncertainty associated with predictions and observations.
    All contributions are welcomed, Contributions are solicited from hydrogeologists, geophysicists, geochemists, climatologists, microbiologists, ecologists, and others involved with experimental and theoretical aspects linked to flow, solute and heat transport in heterogeneous media, with application to water resources, groundwater contamination and remediation, mining and hydrocarbon geology, geothermal resources, and related areas. Topics regarding novel instrumentation and application of usual devices to new developments, real case studies, and adaptation to climate change scenarios are especially welcomed. Tentative papers are intended to deeply describe the materials and methods used in the physical modeling, scale effects, and accuracy of the measurements to validate the results. By presenting this integrative and multidisciplinary volume we aim at transferring knowledge to hydrologists, hydraulic engineers, water resources planners, managers, and policy makers, who are engaged in the sustainable development of groundwater resources.
    Aims and Scope:
    1. Physical modelling
    2. Groundwater Resources
    3. contaminants transport
    4. Experimental and theoretical studies
    5. Geo-Hydrology
    6. Sandbox model
