9780120594856: Applied Groundwater Modeling: Simulation of Flow and Advective Transport

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.

Review:

"Applied Groundwater Modeling will be a commonly used reference for students, academicians, consultants, and regulators. After years of trying to decipher and apply the cryptic methods and arcane notations used by numerical modelers of groundwater flow systems, these seeming mysteries are revealed in an easily understood manner. The terminology, methodologies, and case studies are presented with the eye of a research scientist, the nose of an academic, and the touch of an experienced practitioner. As a result, the reader will be rewarded with the fundamental knowledge needed to use these valuable tools." -- E. SCOTT BLAIR, DEPARTMENT OF GEOLOGY OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY

From the Prepublication Reviews:

"A very significant contribution that addresses a longtime need among hydrologists and others using groundwater models. It will be kept on the work table and not on the bookshelf. It will establish a standard of quality with which future modeling studies will be preformed and reviewed." -- ALAN DUTTON, BUREAU OF ECONOMIC GEOLOGY, UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS AT AUSTIN
