numerical methods to obtain approximate solutions to the
coupled equations of groundwater flow and solute transport.
Groundwater flow simulations require an understanding
of geology and the hydraulics of groundwater flow as well
as a command of numerical simulation methods. When solute
movement is to be simulated, the complexity of the problem
is increased. The description of the flow regime may not
have the resolution needed to support transport analysis;
chemical, physicochemical and biochemical mechanisms
must be represented in the governing equations.
