Abstract

This paper introduces the special section on "new modeling approaches and novel experimental technologies for improved understanding of process dynamics at aquifer-surface water interfaces." It is contextualizing the framework for the 27 research papers of the special section by firth identifying research gaps and imminent challenges for ecohydrological research at aquifer-surface water interfaces and then discussing the specific paper contributions on (i) new developments in temperature/heat tracing at GW-SW interfaces, (ii) new methods to capture the temporal and spatial variability of groundwater - surface water exchange, (iii) new approaches in modeling aquifer-river exchange flow, and (iv) new concepts and advanced theory of groundwater - surface water exchange.
