Abstract

We utilize a regularized integral equation scheme to resolve the three-dimensional backward advection-dispersion equation (BADE) for identifying the groundwater pollution source identification problems in this research. First, the Fourier series expansion method is employed to estimate the concentration field C(x, y, z, t) at any time t < T. Second, we contemplate a direct regularization by adding an extra term a(x, y, z, 0) to transform a second-kind Fredholm integral equation for C(x, y, z, 0). The termwise separable property of the kernel function permits us to acquire a closed-form regularized solution. In addition, a tactic to determine the regularization parameter is recommended. We find that the proposed method is robust and applicable to the three-dimensional BADE when several numerical experiments with the large heterogeneous parameters and the noisy final time data are examined.
