Dr Philippe Renard: Connectivity metrics for subsurface flow and transport

Presented by: Dr Philippe Renard


Over the last ten years, the quantification of the connectivity of heterogeneous porous aquifers has become a very active field of research. In this presentation, Dr Phillippe Renard provides an overview of existing static and connectivity metrics as well as their properties, and tools to constrain geostatistical models by connectivity metrics. He discusses the known relationships between the various concepts and how those tools could be used more widely in applied hydrogeology.

Dr Philippe Renard is Director of Research for the Stochastic Hydrogeology Group at the Centre for Hydrogeology and Geothermics, at the University of Neuchatel, Switzerland. This presentation was given to the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training, at Flinders University in South Australia, on 8 August 2012.
