A conceptual model of flow and transport in a karst aquifer based on spatial and temporal variations of natural tracers

Perrin, Jérôme ; Zwahlen, François (Dir.) ; Jeannin, Pierre-Yves (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel : 2003 ; 1699.

Karst aquifers represent an important groundwater resource world-wide. They are highly vulnerable to contamination due to fast transport through the system and limited attenuation of contaminants. The two main hydrogeological approaches developed for studying flow and transport are: inference of the system structure from karst spring hydrographs and chemographs; numerical modelling of flow and...

Virus transport and attenuation in Perialpine Gravel Aquifers

Flynn, Raymond Matthew ; Zwahlen, François (Dir.) ; Hunkeler, Daniel (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel : 2003 ; 1720.

Pollution of groundwater by microbiological contaminants (bacteria, viruses and protozoa) is a widespread problem in the United States and Europe. Gravel aquifers, which form an important drinking water resource in many parts of Central Europe, may be highly vulnerable to this type of contamination. Due to the smaller size and perceived greater mobility, studies of microbiological contaminant...
