Short summary
This study models the local inflow of groundwater at the bottom of a stream with large density gradients between the groundwater and surface water. Modelling salt and heat transport in a water body is very challenging, as it requires large computation times. Due to the circular local groundwater inflow and a negligible stream discharge, we assume axisymmetry around the inflow, which is easily implemented in an existing model, largely reduces the computation times, and still performs accurately.
