Using Visual MODFLOW to Simulate Groundwater Flow and Transport part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Investigate the Dupuit Approximation to describe groundwater flow in an unconfined aquifer, using a computer spreadsheet program and Visual MODFLOW (Waterloo Hydrogeologic, Inc.). The major strength of this assignment is to introduce students to groundwater modeling concepts and methods in a case study format. Students also interpret groundwater simulation results and write a recommendation report explaining the results.
