Groundwater resources are heavily used on earth for drinking water supply and agriculture. They are endangered by overexploitation and contamination. To manage and protect them, it is often important to model aquifers with an apropriate level of details, and most often the main difficulty is to represent geological heterogeneity. How to represent the geological heterogeneity in groundwater models and is it worth to do it are the main questions that will be discussed in this presentation with a pair of practical examples in fluvio-glacial systems.
