Abstract
Impervious structures below the water table modify the natural groundwater flow in aquifers. They act as barriers, causing heads to rise upgradient and to fall downgradient. We define the barrier effect as the increase in head loss across the barrier with respect to the natural conditions prior to construction. We distinguish between regional (the minimum head loss observed at long distances) and local (the maximum head loss observed close to the structure) barrier effects. We use numerical and ...
