The paper presents an analytical inverse method for the identification of the distance and the entity of impulsive contaminations of rivers, based on the temporal moments of the concentration measured in a cross-section. The proposed method is benchmarked with reference to several small to large rivers and tested against the uncertainty of the governing parameters and the presence of noise in the measures. In most of the considered applications, the method provides reliable solutions at a very limited computational cost.

Abstract

The paper presents an analytical inverse method for the identification of the distance and the entity of impulsive contaminations of rivers, based on the temporal moments of the concentration measured in a cross-section. The proposed method is benchmarked with reference to several small to large rivers and tested against the uncertainty of the governing parameters and the presence of noise in the measures. In most of the considered applications, the method provides reliable solutions at a very limited computational cost.
