9780120581030: Applied Groundwater Modeling: Simulation of Flow and Advective Transport

The second edition of this title encompasses the numerous significant developments in groundwater modeling, since the 1st edition was published in 1992. The increased computational speed and capacity of present day multi-core computers as well as the availability of sophisticated graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and geographical information systems (GISs) have transformed groundwater modeling. In this 2nd edition many of the important advances in applied groundwater modeling introduced since 1992 are discussed, along with the update to treatment of fundamentals of groundwater flow modeling covered in the 1st edition. The chapters on model calibration and forecasting (Chapters 9 and 10 in the 2nd edition) are entirely new and include discussion of new tools for parameter estimation and uncertainty analysis in forecast simulations * Explains how to formulate a conceptual model of a system and how to translate it into a numerical model* Includes the application of modeling principles with special attention to the finite difference flow codes PLASM and MODFLOW, and the finite-element code AQUIFEM-1* Covers model calibration, verification, and validation* Discusses pathline analysis for tracking contaminants with reference to newly developed particle tracking codes* Makes extensive use of case studies and problems

Product Description:

This second edition is extensively revised throughout with expanded discussion of modeling fundamentals and coverage of advances in model calibration and uncertainty analysis that are revolutionizing the science of groundwater modeling. The text is intended for undergraduate and graduate level courses in applied groundwater modeling and as a comprehensive reference for environmental consultants and scientists/engineers in industry and governmental agencies. * Explains how to formulate a conceptual model of a groundwater system and translate it into a numerical model * Demonstrates how modeling concepts, including boundary conditions, are implemented in two groundwater flow codes-- MODFLOW (for finite differences) and FEFLOW (for finite elements) * Discusses particle tracking methods and codes for flowpath analysis and advective transport of contaminants * Summarizes parameter estimation and uncertainty analysis approaches using the code PEST to illustrate how concepts are implemented * Discusses modeling ethics and preparation of the modeling report * Includes Boxes that amplify and supplement topics covered in the text * Each chapter presents lists of common modeling errors and problem sets that illustrate concepts

Product Description:

Creating numerical groundwater models of field problems requires careful attention to describing the problem domain, selecting boundary conditions, assigning model parameters, and calibrating the model. This unique text describes the science and art of applying numerical models of groundwater flow and advective transport of solutes. It explains how to formulate a conceptual model of a system and how to translate it into a numerical model and includes the application of modeling principles with special attention to the finite difference flow codes PLASM and MODFLOW, and the finite-element code AQUIFEM-1. It covers model calibration, verification, and validation and discusses pathline analysis for tracking contaminants with reference to newly developed particle tracking codes. It makes extensive use of case studies and problems.
