    • C2. Preferential Flow and Extensions to Richards Equation 

      DiCarlo, David A (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Multi-phase flow instabilities have always been a great interest in fluid flow in porous media, as they can create fingers and drastically change the travel times of solutes to ground water and/or change the sweep efficiency. ...
    • B2. The Isotopic Age of Runoff in Natural Flow Systems 

      Duffy, Christopher (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      This paper outlines a theory describing fundamental controls on the isotopic “age” of runoff from watersheds. In this context “age” is defined as the time since the water and environmental tracer entered the system as ...

      Selker, John (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      Fingered flow in coarse textured media has long been studied as an exemplar system for exhibiting the interplay between gravity and capillarity at easily observable scales. Early work by Parlange and Hill explained the ...

      Broadbridge, Philip (Internet-First University Press, 2012-05)
      The Darcy-Buckingham macroscopic approach to soil-water modelling, leading to a nonlinear Richards’ diffusion-convection equation, has been very useful for many decades. Some sharp results of the 1970s by W. Brutsaert and ...
