Calibration and Reliability in Groundwater Modelling: Credibility of Modelling

Jens C. Refsgaard (Editor), K. Kovar (Editor), E. Haarder (Editor), E. Nygaard (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearch


The proceedings contain 57 papers. The topics discussed include: on the geostatistical characterization of hierarchical media; evaluation of Fickian and non-Fickian models for solute transport in porous media containing decimeter-scale preferential flow paths; bias-corrected groundwater model prediction uncertainty analysis; solving computationally demanding reliability based design problems in hydrogeology; uncertainty assessment for contamination leaching from flood water retention areas; application of stochastic modelling to numerical solution of groundwater flow: transmissivity upscaling; characterizing the spatial variability of transmissivity using stochastic type-curve and numerical inverse analysis of data from a sequence of pumping tests; and the potential of data assimilation methods for modelling groundwater flow systems: review and synthetic examples.
