Improving wetland simulations by including heat transport in groundwater flow modeling

January 1, 2004

A procedure was developed to automatically calibrate a groundwater flow and heat transport model, resulting in the estimation of hydraulic conductivity and flux across the water table in wetland systems. This paper describes differences between previous approaches and this study, and summarizes some challenges in the method implementation. The procedure was validated in a sequence of hypothetical models with known structure and parameters, and applied to a wetlands system located near Wilton, Wisconsin. Copyright ASCE 2004.
