Numerical Data: Hydrochemical Changes in UPSH, Influence of Hydraulic Parameters E. Pujades

Short summary
The main concern of UPSH using abandoned mines is the water exchanges between the underground reservoir and the surrounding medium, which are relevant in terms of environmental impact and the system efficiency. This work is based in real abandoned slate mine and investigates how the geometry of the mine affects the groundwater exchanges and their associated consequences.
