N2 - The computation of the transient groundwater mound geometry in artificial recharging is a highly important step in the planning of groundwater replenishment activities. A basically new principle to compute the transient location of the groundwater mound analytically is presented. No simplifying assumptions or linearization of phreatic surface conditions have been employed. By conformal mapping, Fourier transformation and asymptotic expansion, explicit formulas for the transient groundwater mound position have been derived. These formulas are used to reproduce results of R. Singh, which he obtained by a finite difference representation of the governing equations and numerical computations.
