Groundwater ﬂow and heat ﬂow are similar in that they both require gradients (hydraulic and thermal, respectively), hydraulic conductivity, and thermal conductivity, and both are assumed to take place

in a continuum in most conditions. Due to the similarities, both processes can be explained by very similar equations. Early investigators visualized these similarities and applied the already-established thermodynamic theories of Fourier and Newton to groundwater ﬂow.
