VMOD2 - Applied Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport Modeling

This 4-day applied groundwater modeling course was designed to present the theory behind MODFLOW (MODFLOW-2000, MODFLOW-USG), MODPATH, ZoneBudget, MT3D/RT3D, SEAWAT, PEST, and to illustrate the practical development of groundwater flow and transport models using Visual MODFLOW Premium (Classic and Flex interfaces). This course introduces the modeling process including conceptual model development, numerical model implementation and model calibration. It alternates between lectures and exercises to illustrate the ease of using Visual MODFLOW Premium. We also use WinPEST to perform automated parameter estimation to evaluate the quality of model calibration.

The course goes beyond these introductory topics and provides advice on how to choose appropriate parameter distributions and model boundaries to develop defensible models of the groundwater system. Attendees will gain a more complete understanding of the integration of GIS and Visual MODFLOW for the development of groundwater models and the presentation of results. Groundwater resource applications that are covered include model calibration using groundwater heads and flows, new well development, capture zone delineation, well interference assessment, and stream impact investigations. Contaminant transport topics include transport model development, model calibration to contaminant concentrations, source area design, choice of appropriate concentration boundary conditions, comparison of transport solvers, and 3D visualization of flow and transport results.

This course is ideally suited for hydrogeologists and modelers with some knowledge of field investigation and groundwater modeling who wish to advance their modeling knowledge, and whose responsibilities include model development, review, planning and project management.
