About this book

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.

Media reviews

"Applied Groundwater Modeling is a good reference for the practitioner performing groundwater modeling. The index is helpful for locating topics of interest, and the literature review and references cited are comprehensive [...] In summary [this book] partially fills a void that has existed in the field of groundwater modeling."
Journal of Contaminant Hydrology

"This is an excellent opportunity for those who, having the necessary skills, are prepared to take seriously the concept that ground water dynamics can be effectively both represented and resolved in numerical terms."
Esrisat Bulletin

"The book presents a useful text that guides the engineer and practitioner through all major stages in the complex adventure of modeling groundwater flow and transport mechanisms in actual field settings. An extensive selection of most recent references helps with understanding of current development in subsurface modeling, while many figures from actual case-study applications bring modeling experience closer to the reader."
Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society

"I believe Applied Groundwater Modeling is a major contribution to the field of groundwater hydrology. It is the type of book that will raise the level of expertise of anyone who reads it."
– E. Scott Bair, Ohio State University

"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, University of Texas at Austin

"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 Bair, Ohio State University
