MODFLOW is a software for groundwater modeling developed by the USGS. The software is capable of representing conditions related to groundwater flow such as evapotranspiration, recharge, drainage, river interaction among others. Its finite different approach gives the capability to calculate the flow regime with exceptional control on water budget discrepancy. With MODFLOW one can rely on that the flow going in the model is the same as the flow going out of it, from the regional scale and on cross sections.
Flopy is the Python library for the creation, simulation and output analysis of MODFLOW models. The library can handle a variety of MODFLOW versions as MODFLOW 2005, MODFLOW USG, MODFLOW and SEAWAT as well as utilities for model output representation and water balance analysis.
This workshop will bring an overview of the main features of MODFLOW and Flopy with a practical part of groundwater modeling on steady state with MODFLOW / Flopy on a Jupyter notebook.
