CWR 6537 Subsurface Contaminant Hydrology Homework #3 - Advection 5 October 2010, Due 12 October 2010 Goal: To understand how variability in pore size distribution (manifested by variations in groundwater velocities) affects solute concentration distributions. Problem Statement: We want to examine the solute concentration distributions in several porous media with log-normally distributed velocity functions (e.g. Y= ln v, where Y is normally distributed). The mean of the log-velocity (uni00B5 lnv , the mean of Y ) in each medium is 0.5 cm/min. There are four different media with log-velocity distribution standard deviations (σ lnv of Y ) less than 1 cm/min. 1. Plot the log-normally distributed velocity probability density function for each medium. Choose a range of variances. 2. Considering only advection, plot the resident solute concentration distribution ( C vs. x ) at three different times for one of the media (on the same graph). Choose times that demonstrate how concentration may vary with time.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
