Asymptotic solutions for solute transport: a formalism for tracer tomography

Asymptotic solutions for solute transport: a formalism for tracer tomography

Water Resources Research 35(1): 1-16

An asymptotic approach to the solution of the transport equation, in the limit of rapid spatial and temporal variation, produces an extremely efficient formalism for the inversion of tracer data. The technique provides tracer concentration sensitivities to porosity, permeability, and pressure gradient variations in just a single simulation run. The calculated sensitivities compare well with those derived using a numerical perturbation method, at a fraction of the computational requirements.
