Groundwater Research and Management


In many regions of the world, the groundwater resource base and the social, economic
and environmental systems dependent on it, are under threat from over-abstraction and
pollution. Groundwater management, beyond pure development of the resource, is in its
incipient phase in many countries and traditionally, management is only weakly hinged
on research. When it comes to solving the problems, and putting into place management
schemes, the impediments are numerous. Besides the lack of basic knowledge and
information of the groundwater resource, knowledge of possible management options is
also inadequate.

This group aims to provide an interaction between groundwater researchers and managers
to synthesize their knowledge, perceptions and ideas for improved groundwater
management and research.

FEFLOW Users Group


FEFLOW (Finite Element subsurface FLOW system) is a sophisticated software package
for the modeling of flow and transport processes in porous media under saturated and
unsaturated conditions. Integral components are interactive graphics, a GIS interface,
data regionalization and visualisation tools and powerful numeric techniques. These
components ensure an efficient working process building the finite element mesh,
assigning model properties and boundary conditions, running the simulation, and
visualizing the results.

Groundwater Vistas Users Group


Groundwater Vistas (GV) is a sophisticated Windows graphical user interface for 3-D
groundwater flow & transport modeling. GV couples a powerful model design system
with comprehensive graphical analysis tools. GV is a model-independent graphical
design system for MODFLOW MODPATH (both steady-state and transient versions),
MT3DMS, MODFLOWT, MODFLOW-SURFACT, MODFLOW2000, GFLOW, RT3D,
PATH3D, SEAWAT and PEST, the model-independent calibration software. The
combination of PEST and GV's automatic sensitivity analysis make GV a powerful
calibration tool.

GMS Users Group


GMS (Groundwater Modeling System) is an advanced, powerful, and comprehensive
groundwater modeling package. GMS provides complete support for the USGS
MODFLOW 3D finite difference, MODPATH 3D particle tracking, MT3DMS 3D multi-
species contaminant transport, RT3D 3D bioremediation transport, SEAM3D 3D
bioremediation transport, SEEP2D 2D finite element, and FEMWATER 3D finite
element groundwater models. Tools are provided for site characterization, model
conceptualization, mesh and grid generation, geostatistics, telescopic model refinement,
automated model calibration, and output post-processing. The program allows common
information to be shared among different data types and groundwater models. GMS is
completely graphical, and can display a defined groundwater model in either plan view or
3D oblique view, and can be rotated interactively. Tools are provided for site
characterization, model conceptualization, mesh and grid generation, geostatistics, and
output post-processing.

SEAWAT Users Group


The SEAWAT program was developed to simulate three-dimensional, variable- density,
transient ground-water flow in porous media. The source code for SEAWAT was
developed by combining MODFLOW and MT3DMS into a single program that solves
the coupled flow and solute-transport equations. The SEAWAT code follows a modular
structure, and thus, new capabilities can be added with only minor modifications to the
main program. SEAWAT reads and writes standard MODFLOW and MT3DMS data
sets, although some extra input may be required for some SEAWAT simulations. This
means that many of the existing pre- and post-processors can be used to create input data
sets and analyze simulation results. Users familiar with MODFLOW and MT3DMS
should have little difficulty applying SEAWAT to problems of variable-density ground-
water flow. SEAWAT-2000 is the latest release of the SEAWAT computer program for
simulation of three-dimensional, variable-density, transient ground-water flow in porous
media. SEAWAT-2000 was designed by combining a modified version of MODFLOW-
2000 and MT3DMS into a single computer program.

This group aims to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and experiences regarding use
and application of SEAWAT software.

ArcGIS - Geographical Information System


Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are used to display, manipulate and analyse
spatial (map) data. ArcGIS (produced by ESRI) is an integrated collection of software
products for building a complete geographic information system (GIS). There are three
ArcGIS desktop applications - ArcCatalog, ArcMap, and ArcToolbox. ArcCatalog is the
application for managing your spatial data holdings, for managing your database designs,
and for recording and viewing metadata. ArcMap is used for all mapping and editing
tasks, as well as for map-based analysis. ArcToolbox is used for data conversion and
geoprocessing. Using these three applications together, you can perform any GIS task,
simple to advanced, including mapping, data management, geographic analysis, data
editing, and geoprocessing. There are also server-based ArcGIS products, as well as
ArcGIS products for PDAs. Extensions can be purchased separately to increase the
functionality of ArcGIS.

GIS is a powerful tool for developing solutions for water resources such as assessing
water quality and managing water resources on a local or regional scale. Hydrologists use
GIS technology to integrate various data and applications into one, manageable system.
ArcGIS with Arc Hydro gives you the flexibility to combine watershed datasets from one
map source with stream and river networks. The suite of tools contained in Arc Hydro
facilitate the creation, manipulation, and display of hydro features and objects within the
ArcGIS environment. Use ArcGIS Spatial Analyst for hydrologic analysis such as
calculating flow across an elevation surface, which provides the basis for creating stream
networks and watersheds; calculating flow path length; and assigning stream orders.

This group aims to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and experiences regarding
application of GIS in Hydrology and Water Resources; and use of ArcGIS software (in
general) and Arc Hydro (in particular).
