High-resolution 3D analyses of the shape and internal constituents of small volcanic ash particles: The contribution of SEM micro-computed tomography (SEM micro-CT)

In: Journal of Volcanology and Geothermal Research, 2015, vol. 293, p. 1–12

The morphology of small volcanic ash particles is fundamental to our understanding of magma fragmentation, and in transport modeling of volcanic plumes and clouds. Until recently, the analysis of 3D features in small objects (< 250 μm) was either restricted to extrapolations from 2D approaches, partial stereo-imaging, or CT methods having limited spatial resolution and/or accessibility. In...

A numerical analysis of dimensionality and heterogeneity effects on advective dispersive seawater intrusion processes

Kerrou, Jaouher ; Renard, Philippe

In: Hydrogeology Journal, 2010, vol. 18, no. 1, p. 55-72

Two-dimensional (2D) and 3D numerical simulations of the dispersive Henry problem show that heterogeneity affects seawater intrusion differently in 2D and 3D. When the variance of a multi-Gaussian isotropic hydraulic conductivity field increases, the penetration of the saltwater wedge decreases in 2D while it increases in 3D. This is due to the combined influence of advective and dispersive...

Deterministic and probabilistic numerical modelling towards sustainable groundwater management : application to seawater intrusion in the Korba aquifer (Tunisia)

Kerrou, Jaouher ; Renard, Philippe (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2008 ; Th. 2053.

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...
