Recent advances in lattice Boltzmann modeling permit simulation of large-scale density-dependent ground water flow and heat/solute transport systems while retaining the advantages of ‘regular’ lattice Boltzmann methods, such as solute/heat transport at higher Reynolds numbers that can characterize flows in conduits. We model the simultaneous heat/solute problem described by Henry and Hilleke in 1972 as an extension of Henry’s classic 1964 seawater intrusion problem. We also demonstrate the method’s ‘dual domain’ modeling potential.
