Tutorial for regional groundwater flow modeling with MODFLOW and MODEL MUSE

Quick tutorial for the numerical modeling of groundwater flow regime for an andean basin.

 

Content

This tutorial have these main tasks:

  • Define a model extension by shapefile
  • Define active zone and inactive zone
  • Activate the solver and boundary conditions
  • Import a DEM (raster)
  • Assign 4 layers: 1 aluvial + 3 Fractured rock
  • Define the acuifer type and vertical discretization
  • Set the hydraulic parameters
  • Check the Modflow Time, check Steady/Transient
  • Assign the boundary conditions RCH, EVT, DRN
  • Run the model
  • Check the global water balancce
  • Import results
  • Water table on cross section
