  • Nitrate pollution of groundwater; all right…, but nothing else? 

    Menció, Anna; Mas-Pla, Josep; Otero, Neus; Regas, O; Boy-Roura, M.; PUIG, R; Bach, J; Domènech Ortí, Cristina; Zamorano, Manel; Brusi, David; Folch Sancho, Albert (2016-01)
    Article

    Contamination from agricultural sources and, in particular, nitrate pollution, is one of the main concerns in groundwater management. However, this type of pollution entails the entrance of other substances into the aquifer, ...
  • Evaluation of two carbon sources for inducing denitrification: batch and column experiments 

    Grau Martinez, Alba; Carrey, Raul; Torrentó, Clara; Folch Sancho, Albert; Soler, Albert; Otero, Neus (Elsevier, 2016)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Artificial recharge improves several water quality parameters. Denitrification is a good example of water treatment process that could be achieved through artificial recharge. To improve the removal of nitrate and other ...
  • Occurrence and spatial distribution of emerging contaminants in the unsaturated zone. Case study: Guadalete River basin (Cadiz, Spain) 

    Corada-Fernández, Carmen; Jiménez Martinez, Joaquin; Candela Lledó, Lucila; González-Mazo, Eduardo; Lara-Martín, Pablo A. (2015-01)
    Article

    Irrigation with reclaimed water is becoming a common practice in arid- and semi-arid regions as a consequence of structural water resource scarcity. This practice can lead to contamination of the vadose zone if sewage-derived ...
  • Characterization of concrete by calibrating thermo-hydraulic multiphase flow models 

    Chaparro Sánchez, Maria Carme; Saaltink, Maarten Willem; Villar Galicia, María Victoria (2015-08-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Evaporation tests in concrete columns have been analysed by numerical models to characterize the thermo-hydraulic properties and the processes in concrete. Two evaporation tests were performed: a column heated by a lamp ...

  • Reactive transport modeling of leaking CO2-saturated brine along a fractured pathway 

    Ahmad, Nawaz; Worman, Anders; Bottaccin Busolin, Andrea; Sánchez Vila, Francisco Javier (John Gale, 2015-11)
    Article

    One concern regarding the underground storage of carbon dioxide (CO2) is its potential leakage from reservoirs. Over short period of time, the leakage risk is related mainly to CO2 as a separate supercritical fluid phase. ...
  • Vadose zone oxygen (O2) dynamics during drying and wetting cycles: An artificial recharge laboratory experiment 

    Dutta, Tanushree; Carles Brangari, Albert; Fernández García, Daniel; Rubol, Simonetta; Sánchez Vila, Francisco Javier; Tirado Conde, Joel (Elsevier, 2015-05-02)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Vadose zone oxygen dynamics control all subsurface redox reactions and play a decisive role in maintaining groundwater quality. Although drying and wetting events are common in artificial recharge, their effects on subsurface ...
  • The effects of sediment depth and oxygen concentration on the use of organic matter: an experimental study using an infiltration sediment tank 

    Freixa, Anna; Rubol, Simonetta; Carles Brangari, Albert; Fernández García, Daniel; Butturini, Andrea; Sánchez Vila, Francisco Javier; Romani Cornet, Anna Maria (2015-04-02)
    Article

    Water flowing through hyporheic river sediments or artificial recharge facilities promotes the development of microbial communities with sediment depth. We performed an 83-day mesocosm infiltration experment, to study ...
  • On the formation of multiple local peaks in breakthrough curves 

    Siirila, Erica; Sánchez Vila, Francisco Javier; Fernández García, Daniel (2015-04)
    Article
    Open Access
    The analysis of breakthrough curves (BTCs) is of interest in hydrogeology as a way to parameterize and explain processes related to anomalous transport. Classical BTCs assume the presence of a single peak in the curve, ...
  • The impact of poplar tree plantations for biomass production on the aquifer water budget and base flow in a Mediterranean basin 

    Folch Sancho, Albert; Ferrer Ramos, Nuria (2015-08-15)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Poplar plantations are used for biomass production in many countries. These plantations are often located in areas where the tree roots can reach the water table of shallow aquifers to reduce irrigation costs and increase ...
