Numerical optimization of bank filtration site management

Hydrogeology

The project investigates numerical approaches to bring forth best-management strategies crucial for drinking water production from bank filtration. Depicting the ties between spatially heterogeneous hydrological processes, particularly at the river-aquifer interface, and flow and transport in a heterogeneous aquifer constitute a critical aspect. Therefore, physical surface and subsurface flow and transport simulations will be coupled and embedded into a framework to quantify and minimize predictive uncertainty. The overarching goal is to provide decision support fit for near real-time operation of such sites under wide-ranging hydrological boundary conditions.
