Thermal Use of Shallow Groundwater

The thermal use of shallow subsurface is increasingly promoted and implemented as one of many environmentally friendly technologies. Theoretical background of heat transport in the subsurface is introduced and the essential thermal properties are discussed. A series of analytical and numerical tools based on the heat transport equation are also presented. Case studies are introduced for illustration.
