Wavelet analysis to characterize hydraulic properties of porous media

Hydraulic properties of porous media, such as permeability and porosity, control subsurface flow and the movement of chemicals dissolved in groundwater. Typically, these properties are spatially variable, and can vary over multiple spatial scales. An accurate characterization of the spatial variability of these aquifer properties is necessary to predict the rate and direction of movement of groundwater and dissolved chemicals. We are investigating the use of wavelet analysis as a characterization tool for the spatial variability of these properties.
