A stagnation point is any point in the aquifer where the fluid velocity is equal to zero. Stagnation points can occur where the flow encounters impermeable surfaces or where the potentiometric surface is nearly horizontal.

Abstract

A stagnation point is any point in the aquifer where the fluid velocity is equal to zero. Stagnation points can occur where the flow encounters impermeable surfaces or where the potentiometric surface is nearly horizontal. The presence of stagnation points is useful to locate groundwater bodies characterized by a very long renewal time.
