This PhD endeavours numerical groundwater modelling considering heterogeneous and uncertain hydraulic parameters. It is made of three parts. First, we investigated the effects of dimensionality and heterogeneity of the hydraulic conductivity on dispersive seawater intrusion (SWI) processes. Multiple 2D and 3D unconditional simulations of hydraulic conductivity fields sharing the same statistics...
