This two-volume set represents the reviewed and edited proceedings of this meeting, including papers. In addition, many posters were presented at the meeting, which are not included in this formal written record. These collective works include contributions by many of the leading water resources research groups from around the world. Broad in scope, these papers address numerous aspects of water resources systems, ranging from the microscale to the field scale and from the very fundamental to the most compelling and important of applications. Virtually all major classes of numerical methods for water resources problems are represented in these proceedings, from the evolution of traditional approaches to the latest in methods of recent invention. As has been traditional at past CMWR meetings, subsurface hydrology, land surface hydrology, and surface water hydrology are well represented.

Bierkens, Marc; Broers, H. Abstract Groundwater is a valuable natural resource and as such should be protected from chemical pollution. Because of the long travel times of pollutants through groundwater bodies, early detection of groundwater quality deterioration is necessary to efficiently protect groundwater bodies.
The aim of this work was to develop and improve tools The study area of the research presented in this thesis was the province of Noord-Brabant, the Netherlands. Noord-Brabant is one of the areas in Europe which is most affected by agricultural pollution.

Environmental tracers and groundwater dating
The gases are well-mixed in the atmosphere so their input functions are not area-specific as is the case with 3H. While any one of these trace gases can in principle provide a groundwater age, when two or more are measured on water samples the potential exists to distinguish between different modes of flow including piston flow, exponential flow and simple end-member mixing. As with all groundwater dating methods, caveats apply. Factors such as recharge temperature and elevation must be reasonably well-constrained.
Primarily for the CFCs, local sources of contamination need to be considered, as do redox conditions.
We will seek direct evidence by focusing on groundwater seepage as it enters agricultural drainages in southern Wisconsin. The work objectives will include four tasks: This will involve the identification of representative seepage areas and the characterization of the apparent-recharge dates using age-date tracer gases [chlorofluorocarbons CFCs and sulfur hexafluoride SF6 ]. Project Methods Groundwater Seepage. Sampling locations will be established using a suite of approaches, including on the ground geograhic channel surveys and analysis of available high resolution infrared imagery, in consulatation with local cooperating land owners, managers, scientists, and researchers.
We will use rectangular grids of minipiezometers 3 to 6 mm o. Grid intervals will be established by dividing the number of minipiezometers by the seep area. We will use cross-sectional networks of minipiezometers and longitudinal arrays arranged along thalwegs to resolve the age-date structure in gaining stream segments. Where seepage zones are dominantly hard rock carbonate dissolution features, seepage meters will be designed and employed to resolve the age-date structure.
The potentiometric head and hydraulic conductivity Hvorslev falling head test of seepage sediments will be measured for each minipiezometer to obtain specific discharge estimates. Specific discharge will be measured directly where seepage meters are employed. Dissolved gases will be harvested in the field using the ebullition approach developed in-house.
The increase in population could result in potential water quality impacts from the changing land use and urbanization. In addition, there has been an improved awareness of the interconnection of surface water and ground water along with water quality and water quantity issues. The result is increasingly complicated regulatory, political, and legal issues that not only involve municipal, county, and state agencies in Idaho but the equivalent involvement in Washington state.
In order to determine the current water quality and evaluate for the presence of any contaminants or use as a baseline for future water quality studies, DEQ completed a yearlong water quality investigation. The investigation included sampling numerous water wells completed in the RPA and along with the peripheral lakes. The sample locations can be seen below.
History[ edit ] Carbon tetrachloride CCl4 was used in fire extinguishers and glass “anti-fire grenades” from the late nineteenth century until around the end of World War II. Experimentation with chloroalkanes for fire suppression on military aircraft began at least as early as the s. Freon is a trade name for a group of CFCs which are used primarily as refrigerants , but also have uses in fire-fighting and as propellants in aerosol cans. Bromomethane is widely used as a fumigant.
Dichloromethane is a versatile industrial solvent. In the late s, Thomas Midgley, Jr. In searching for a new refrigerant, requirements for the compound were: In a demonstration for the American Chemical Society , Midgley flamboyantly demonstrated all these properties by inhaling a breath of the gas and using it to blow out a candle  in Nevertheless, after the war they slowly became more common in civil aviation as well.
In the s, fluoroalkanes and bromofluoroalkanes became available and were quickly recognized as being highly effective fire-fighting materials. Much early research with Halon was conducted under the auspices of the US Armed Forces, while Halon was, initially, mainly developed in the UK. By the late s they were standard in many applications where water and dry-powder extinguishers posed a threat of damage to the protected property, including computer rooms, telecommunications switches, laboratories, museums and art collections.
Beginning with warships , in the s, bromofluoroalkanes also progressively came to be associated with rapid knockdown of severe fires in confined spaces with minimal risk to personnel. By the early s, bromofluoroalkanes were in common use on aircraft, ships, and large vehicles as well as in computer facilities and galleries.

American Aggregates English Rule overturned in Ohio Justice Holmes Scientific knowledge in the field of hydrology has advanced in the past decade so it can establish the cause and effect relationship of the tapping of underground water to the existing water level.

These openings occur in very irregular fashion and make prediction of aquifer properties very difficult. Reliable tools for resource evaluation in fractured rock aquifers are nevertheless needed for efficient management of these resources. The Water Research Commission identified hard rock or fractured rock aquifers as a theme of groundwater research requiring a high priority in terms of funding. These gases are chemically stable, safe and have convenient boiling points resulting in widespread use in society.
Used CFC gas accumulates in the atmosphere where it poses a serious hazard to’ stratospheric ozone.
Enhanced in situ biodenitrification for nitrate-polluted groundwater External PhD project: Groundwater pollution by nitrate is an important environmental problem. Enhanced in-situ biodenitrification is a clean and economical technology that allows remediating nitrate-polluted groundwater. In this context, development of reactive transport models RTM in order to predict rates of in situ biodenitrification is a useful tool to design and monitor the performance of this technology.
The main objective of this project is the development of models of enhanced in-situ biodenitrification at different scales, from batch to field scale. The models involve microbiological processes, main geochemical interactions with aquifer and isotopic fractionation during denitrification. TNO co-financing program, Vitens N.
