The series of manuals on techniques describes procedures for planning and executing specialized work in water-resources investigations. The material is grouped under major subject headings called books and further subdivided into sections and chapters; section B of book 3 is on ground-water techniques.
The unit of publication, the chapter, is limited to a narrow field of subject matter. This format permits flexibility in revision and publication as the need arises. Chapter 3B7 deals with analytical solutions to the solute-transport equation for a variety of boundary condition types and solute-source configurations in one-, two-, and three-dimensional systems with uniform ground-water flow.
Provisional drafts of chapters are distributed to field offices of the U.S. Geological Survey for their use. These drafts are subject to revision because of experience in use or because of advancement of knowledge, techniques, or equipment. After the technique described in a chapter is sufficiently developed, the chapter is published and is for sale from the U.S. Geological Survey, Book and Open-File Report Sales, Federal Center, Box 25425, Denver, CO 80225.
Copies of the computer codes and sample data sets described in this report are available on diskette from Book and Open-File Report Sales as USGS Open File Report 92-78. They are on a 5.25 (360K) double-density diskette formatted for the IBM PC. The computer programs were originally written for a Prime minicomputer but all programs should run using IBM-PC Fortrans with minor modifications as described in the report. The plot routines were written with DISSPLA software calls and can be used on the PC only with the PC version of the DISSPLA library. Alternatively, data can be easily extracted from the program output and plotted using PC graphics presentation programs.
