Abstract

The variance in particle position, a measure of dispersion, is reviewed in the context of certain models of flow in random porous media. Asymptotic results for a highly stratified medium and an isotropic medium are particularly highlighted. Results of the natural gradient tracer test at the Borden site are reviewed in light of these models. This review suggests that the moments obtained for the conservative tracers at the Borden site could as well be explained by a model that more explicitly represents the three-dimensional nature of the flow field.
