The tempered one-sided stable density: a universal model for hydrological transport?
2011 (English)In: Environmental Research Letters, ISSN 1748-9326, Vol. 6, no 3, 034008- p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
A generalized distribution for the water residence time in hydrological transport is proposed in the form of the tempered one-sided stable (TOSS) density. It is shown that limiting cases of the TOSS distribution recover virtually all distributions that have been considered in the literature for hydrological transport, from plug flow to flow reactor, the advection-dispersion model, and the gamma and Levy densities. The stable property of TOSS is particularly important, enabling a seamless transition between a time-domain random walk, and the Lagrangian (trajectory) approach along hydrological transport pathways.
