Research Summary — Groundwater Pumping Impacts on Real Stream Networks: Testing the Performance of Simple Management Tools
Published in May 2018, this study, Groundwater Pumping Impacts on Real Stream Networks: Testing the Performance of Simple Management Tools, defined three components of the analytical model approach: analytical model, apportionment method, and area of influence. Funded by the Government of Canada (NSERC) and the University of Victoria, this study provides the first test against numerical models using the groundwater flow system around Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, B.C. as the exemplar.
Overall, authors Samuel C. Zipper, Tom Dallemange, Tom Gleeson, Thomas C. Boerman and Andreas Hartmann identified the significance of stream geometry and drainage network for calculating estimates.
