Basics of Groundwater Flow Modelling Using MODFLOW


Basics of Groundwater Flow Modelling Using MODFLOW, Fundamentals of Groundwater Flow Modelling Concepts in English.

Master groundwater flows modeling from the ground up using the MODFLOW code and GMS software. You will learn the fundamentals of groundwater in general and groundwater modeling in particular during this course.

No matter how much groundwater knowledge or expertise you have. Most importantly, you must be willing to learn about groundwater modeling.

During our  course we will discuss interesting topics as follow:

  • Basics of groundwater
  • The theoretical background of groundwater flow
  • Aquifer types
  • Groundwater flow equation
  • Concept and steps of groundwater modeling
  • Creating Models using a grid approach

Also, during our course, we will use and practice much software like:

  • Groundwater Modeling System (GMS): for groundwater flow modeling simulation
  • ArcGIS: for building the model conceptually, extract shape files and extract raster
  • Excel: to solve finite differences manually, read spreadsheets, and extract CSV files
  • Global Mapper: for extracting Digital Elevation Models (DEM), rectifying images, and converting projection

By the end, you will not only be able to create groundwater models by following the steps in this course, but you will also be able to understand the concept of groundwater modeling and how the MODFLOW code uses the finite difference to solve the groundwater flow equation, as well as how to judge whether your model is correct or not and how to find and fix problems on your own.

So, let’s start 🙂

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
