Example of Wetting/Drying Capabilities on Groundwater Modeling with MODFLOW 6 - Tutorial


Example of the wetting/drying capabilities in MODFLOW 6 on a groundwater model on steady and transient flow conditions. The simulation represent the groundwater flow of a 2 layer model at the following stress periods: no pumping, pumping from 2 wells, recovery from pumping in 50 days. The model has been implemented with the recharge package (RCH), river package (RIV), and well package (WEL).

The tutorial also runs some Python script for the translation of model results and boundary conditions in VTK geometry. The Python script has a interactive feature for the representation of selected stress periods and time steps. A discussion of the water table at pumping and recovery was done on the last of the tutorial.
