Recharge (R) Behaviours

Example 1 Flow reversals beneath a small lake in a deep aquifer (W/B = 0.25, KH /KV = 10)

 

Flow Through (FT) Behaviours

Example 1 Highly-responsive aquifer with strong lake forcing (W/B = 0.5)
Example 2 Medium-responsive aquifer with strong lake forcing (Example 1 with smaller forcing period)
Example 3 Low-responsive aquifer with strong lake forcing (Example 1 with smaller forcing period)
Example 4 Low-responsive aquifer with medium lake forcing (Example 3 with smaller amplitude of lake recharge)

 

Flow Through-Recharge (FT-R) Behaviours

Example 1 Flow reversals beneath a small lake in a deep aquifer (W/B = 0.25, KH /KV = 1)
Example 2 Example 1 with opposite phase between lake and aquifer recharge

 

Flow Through-Discharge (FT-D) Behaviours

Example 1 Complete recapture of lake water in one period (W/B = 4)
Example 2 Complete recapture of lake water after multiple periods (W/B = 4)
Example 3 Partial recapture of lake water (W/B = 8)
