Ground Water Contaminant Source and Transport Parameter Identification by Correlation Coefficient Optimization

Authors


Abstract

Inverse procedures based on correlation coefficient optimization are developed to locate ground water contaminant sources and to identify transport parameters. For cases involving two-dimensional instantaneous and continuous sources, the inverse formulas are explicit. These procedures allow not only for the delineation of the sampled contaminant plume, but also the tracing and the projection of the plume history.
