Modeling of Flow and Transport Processes in the Subsurface
During the last years, the development of numerical methods and modeling techniques for the simulation of flow and transport processes in subsurface hydrosystems has emerged to a powerfull tool in the prediction of human impacts on nature regarding the changes in flow conditions, water budget, as well as water quality. But it is important to note that the state of the art as well as the spatial and temporal application ranges significantly vary for different processes. Single-phase flow and transport processes are comparatively well-understood, and a number of different suitable numerical simulators are available. As a consequence, such applications are carried out up to the regional scale and have belonged to the engineering practice for years. With a number of restrictions, this is also the case for density-driven flows which are caused by e.g. salt-water.
