Abstract
Efficiency constraints in applying numerical models to real problems force the use of a coarse discretization of the domain compared with the detailed scale required for the most adequate description of the system. Upscaling encompasses the methods that transfer small-scale information to the computational scale. The loss of small-scale information by upscaling aquifer properties to construct a numerical model largely modifies the true heterogeneous structure of the aquifer compromising the fina...
