Regional Groundwater Modeling with MODFLOW and Model Muse

This video considers the construction of a regional groundwater model from scratch. Data entry will shapefiles and raster files.

 

Content

The video will include the following tasks:

  • Grid generation from shapefiles
  • Aquifer and boundary condition conceptualization
  • Hydrogeologic units parametrization by shapefile
  • Import elevation from a AsterDEM
  • Recharge determination from precipitation rasters
  • Wetlands assessment form satellite images and model hydraulic heads
  • Groundwater water balance analysis
  • The agenda is interesting and applied for the study of groundwater at basin scale.
