Title:Percolation Theory for Flow in Porous Media [electronic resource]
Author(s): Allen Hunt
Robert Ewing
Behzad Ghanbarian
Date:2014
Edition:3rd ed. 2014
Publisher:Cham : Springer International Publishing : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:This monograph presents, for the first time, a unified and comprehensive introduction to some of the basic transport properties of porous media, such as electrical and hydraulic conductivity, air permeability and diffusion. Theapproach is based on cr itical path analysis and the scaling of transport properties, which are individually described as functions of saturation. At the same time, the book supplies a tutorial on percolation theory for hydrologists,providing them with the tools for solving actu al problems. In turn, a separate chapter serves to introduce physicists to some of the language and complications of groundwater hydrology necessary for successful modeling. Theend-of-chapter problems often indicate open questions, which young researchers entering the field can readily start working on. This significantly revised and expanded third edition includes in particular two new chapters: one onadvanced fractal-based models, and one devoted to the discussion of various open issues such as the role of diffusion vs. advection, preferential flow vs. critical path, universal vs. non-universal exponents for conduction, and lastbut not least, the overall influence of the experimental apparatus in data collection and theory validation. The book is suitab le for advanced graduate courses, with selected problems and questions appearing at the end of eachchapter. [...] I think the book is an important work that will guide soil scientists, hydrologists, and physicists to gain a better qualitative and quantita tive understanding of multitransport properties of soils. (Marcel G. Schaap,Soil Science Society of America Journal, May-June, 2006)

Note:Long-memory processes are known to play an important part in many areas of science and technology, including physics, geophysics, hydrology, telecommunications, economics, finance, climatology, and network engineering. In the last20 years enormous pr ogress has been made in understanding the probabilistic foundations and statistical principles of such processes. This book provides a timely and comprehensive review, including a thorough discussion of mathematicaland probabilistic foundations and statis tical methods, emphasizing their practical motivation and mathematical justification. Proofs of the main theorems are provided and data examples illustrate practical aspects.

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Focusing on research surrounding aspects of insufficiently studied problems of estimation and optimal control of random fields, this book exposes some important aspects of those fields for systems modeled by stochastic partialdifferential equations. It contains many results of interest to specialists in both the theory of random fields and optimal control theory who use modern mathematical tools for resolving specific applied problems, and presents researchthat has not previously been covered. More g enerally, this book is intended for scientists, graduate, and post-graduates specializing in probability theory and mathematical statistics. The models presented describe many processes inturbulence theory, fluid mechanics, hydrology, astronomy, and meteo rology, and are widely used in pattern recognition theory and parameter identification of stochastic systems. Therefore, this book may also be useful to appliedmathematicians who use probability and statistical methods in the selection of useful signals s ubject to noise, hypothesis distinguishing, distributed parameter systems optimal control, and more. Material presented in this monographcan be used for education courses on the estimation and control theory of random fields

Title:Thermo-Hydro-Mechanical-Chemical Processes in Porous Media [electronic resource] : Benchmarks and Examples
Author(s): Olaf Kolditz
Uwe-Jens Grke
Hua Shao
Wenqing Wang
Date:2012
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book comprises an assembly of benchmarks and examples for porous media mechanics collected over the last twenty years. Analysis of thermo-hydro-mechanical-chemical (THMC) processes is essential to many applications inenvironmental engineering, su ch as geological waste deposition, geothermal energy utilisation, carbon capture and storage, water resources management, hydrology, even climate chance. In order to assess the feasibility as well as thesafety of geotechnical applications, process-based m odelling is the only tool to put numbers, i.e. to quantify future scenarios. This charges a huge responsibility concerning the reliability of computational tools. Benchmarking is anappropriate methodology to verify the quality of modelling tools based on best practices. Moreover, benchmarking and code comparison foster community efforts. The benchmark book is part of the OpenGeoSys initiative - an open sourceproject to share knowledge and experience in environmental analysis and scientific computation

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume brings together selected contributions from geoENV 2008, the 7th International Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Applications, held in Southampton, UK, in September 2008. This book presents thestate-of-the-art in geostatistics for the environmental sciences. It includes a wide range of methodological advances and applications. It offers insight and guidance for researchers, professionals, graduate students and others seekinginformation on the latest perspectives in the field. The rich body of applications will enable those new to geostatistics to assess the utility of the methods for their own applications. The book includes 35 chapters on topics asdiverse as methodological developments, applications in the soil sciences, clim atology, pollution, health, wildlife mapping, fisheries and remote sensing, amongst other areas. With its focus on environmental applications ofgeostatistics, rather than the more traditional geostatistical remit of mining and petroleum exploration, this book is part of a series that presents an invaluable resource. This book will be a first port of call for those who wish toapply geostatistical methods in the environmental sciences. Audience: Researchers, scientists, professionals, institutes, libraries, graduate students of geosciences, geostatistics, spatial statistics, environmental science andengineering, ecology, oceanography, climatology, hydrology, soil and forestry science

Note:The statistical analysis of extreme data is important for various disciplines, including hydrology, insurance, finance, engineering and environmental sciences. This book provides a self-contained introduction to the parametricmodeling, exploratory an alysis and statistical interference for extreme values. The entire text of this third edition has been thoroughly updated and rearranged to meet the new requirements. Additional sections and chapters, elaboratedon more than 100 pages, are particularly con cerned with topics like dependencies, the conditional analysis and the multivariate modeling of extreme data. Parts IIII about the basic extreme value methodology remain unchanged to somelarger extent, yet notable are, e.g., the new sections about An Over view of Reduced-Bias Estimation (co-authored by M.I. Gomes), The Spectral Decomposition Methodology, and About Tail Independence (co-authored by M. Frick),and the new chapter about Extreme Value Statistics of Dependent Random Variables (co-authored by H. Drees). Other new topics, e.g., a chapter about Environmental Sciences, (co--authored by R.W. Katz), are collected within PartsIVVI

Note:Currently, a first generation of dedicated satellite missions for the precise mapping of the Earths gravity field is in orbit (CHAMP, GRACE, and soon GOCE). The gravity data from these satellite missions provide us with verynew information on the dyn amics of planet Earth. In particular, on the mass distribution in the Earths interior, the entire water cycle (ocean circulation, ice mass balance, continental water masses, and atmosphere), and on changesin the mass distribution. The results are fascinat ing, but still rough with respect to spatial and temporal resolution. Technical progress in satellite-to-satellite tracking and in gravity gradiometry will allow more detailed resultsin the future. In this special issue, Earth scientists develop visions o f future applications based on follow-on high-precision satellite gravimetry missions
