Geohydraulic characterisation of fractured rock flow regimes. Regional studies in Granite (Lindau, Black Forest, Germany) and Dolomite (Tsumeb Aquifers, Northern Namibia) [online]

Baeumle, Roland


The fundamental problem related to the characterisation of the
regional groundwater flow in fractured rock is based on the
difficulties in identifying and characterising hydraulically
significant fractures on a regional scale. In this thesis,
various geohydraulic approaches were applied in order to
investigate the regional groundwater flow regime in two
different fractured rock aquifers. The synthesis of the results
from different geohydraulic methods is an important aspect and
constitutes the principal methodological approach of this
investigation. The case studies include fractured rock aquifers
in Southwest Germany and Namibia. The Lindau fractured rock test
site is situated within the north-eastern part of a granitic
pluton in the Southern Black Forest. The Tsumeb Aquifers are
located in the Otavi Mountainland, a dolomite rock massif that
hosts one of the most valuable groundwater resources of northern
The following five different geohydraulic methods were applied
in the regional case studies: well hydrograph recession
analysis, hydraulic tests, groundwater tracer techniques,
hydrochemical investigations and groundwate ... mehr
