Nowadays, it is becoming common practice to apply mathematical models to simulate groundwater flow, solute and heat transport and subsidence. The present-day problem is not gaining access to computers or obtaining computer codes but the acquisition of numerical values for the different hydraulic parameters to be used in these mathematical models. Other problems on the order of the day are: how to calibrate the mathematical model; what is the reliability of the results of a calibrated mathematical model; and which data should be gathered to have a sufficiently precise simulation of the problem under consideration? It is one of the additional aims of this book to contribute to the solution of all these problems.
