  2. 2. Design and Optimisation of an Aquifer Storage and Recovery System - Options for long term storage under natural hydraulic gradients

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Teknisk geologi

    Author : Simon Kreipl; [2021]
    Keywords : Aquifer storage and recovery; well-field design; groundwater modelling; numerical modelling; FEFLOW; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) is a concept where water is stored in an aquifer during times when it is available, thus creating artificial groundwater, which can later be recovered by pumping when it is needed (Pyne, 1995). One ASR cycle consists of a injection, a standby and a recovery phase. READ MORE
