Event: Computational Methods in Water Resources XXII, Saint-Malo (France) June 2018
Presentation by Joel Tirado-Conde, Majken Looms and Peter Engesgaard
The use of integrated surface and subsurface hydrologic models (ISSHM) to understand the flow exchange processes occurring in stream-wetland areas may give important insights to researchers and water resource managers in terms of understanding where groundwater preferentially discharge to stream valleys. How to best monitor and quantify the surface water – groundwater interaction is a non-resolved issue. Several techniques have been proposed based on the use of heat as a tracer and they aim to provide robust and reliable results. An ISSHM of a stream-wetland area in central Jutland (Denmark) is developed in order to create a benchmark model that could better constrain the applicability of such techniques.
