AMathematical Modeling of Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport consists of mathematical representation of an idealized conceptual model, based on gathering and interpreting data and observation of the real hydrogeological system. The objective of this model is that of obtaining a better understanding of the dynamics of the real system, thus making it possible to predict future situations and, in some cases, past situations, minimizing costs and driving investments and strategies for the recovery of degraded areas.
Mathematical modeling can be used in order to attain the following objectives:
- three-dimensional visualization of the dynamics of complex groundwater flow systems;
- determination of capture zones of wells;
- simulation and prediction of the physical-chemical responses of an aquifer, with quantification of groundwater flow and contaminant transport;
- assessment of concentrations of chemical substances or elements at points of concern, verifying whether a given receptor will be reached over time; and
- assessment of the effectiveness/efficiency of proposed remediation systems (e.g., pumping systems, source removal, geotechnical containment, etc.).
We have professionals with international experience in the development and application of mathematical groundwater flow and contaminant transport models.
