Example of Particle Tracking Modeling with MODPATH in Model Muse


MODPATH is a particle tracking model that runs on the groundwater flow models simulated on MODFLOW. Particle tracking are three dimensional and can have a sort of options as forward / backward modeling direction in between others. Model Muse is a pre and post-processor of numerical models in MODFLOW, PHAST and SUTRA, this software can simulate some MODFLOW related models as MODPATH and MT3D (particle tracking and mass transport respectively). This tutorial show the basic procedure to set up a particle tracking model with MODPATH using Model Muse over a basic MODFLOW model.

Please notice that Modpath version for this tutorial is version 6, the one that is currently implemented in Model Muse (Nov 2017).
