Applied Groundwater Modeling
Mary P. Anderson and William W. Woessner

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, Applied Groundwater Modeling, describes the science and art of applying numerical models of groundwater flow and advective transport of solutes.

Key Features: 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.

Contents: Equations and Numerical Methods. The Conceptual Model and Grid Design. Boundaries. Source and Sinks. Profile Models. Special Needs for Transient Simulations. Model Execution and the Calibration Process. Documenting and Reporting Your Modeling Study. Post audits: How Good Are Your Predictions? Particle Tracking of Ground-Water Flow and the Advective Transport of Contaminants. Advanced Topics. Chapter References. 381 pages
