Convection and heat transfer in layered sloping warm-water aquifers

Abstract:

What convective flow is induced if a geologically-tratified groundwater aquifer is subject to a vertical temperature gradient? How strong is the flow? What is the nett heat transfer? Is the flow stable? How does the convection affect the subsequent species distribution if a pollutant finds its way into the aquifer? This paper begins to address such questions. Quantitative models for buoyancy-driven fluid flow in long, sloping warm-water aquifers with both smoothly- and discretely-layered stru...
