Implementation of Multiple Wells with MODFLOW and Model Muse - Tutorial

MultipleWellsMODFLOW.png

Groundwater modeling on the regional scale or with huge baseline can be tedious to do manually in a Graphical User Interface as Model Muse. There are more advanced options to insert a great amount of wells with long and diverse pumping schedules with Flopy or by altering the *.gpt file with some programming effort; however these are kind of intermediate level solutions that would be time expensive for a beginner groundwater modeler.

This tutorial shows the procedure to insert multiple wells with different pumping rates in MODFLOW with Model Muse by the use of some special features. The procedure can insert wells at different depths however it cannot set the well name and in case of wells with multiple pumping records a group of superposed wells will be inserted, one for each pumping rate record.
