DETAILS
This 5-day course presents an introduction to groundwater flow simulation using MODFLOW. The course will be taught using the newly released version of MODFLOW, MODFLOW-6. In addition to discussing the feature and mechanics of using MODFLOW-6, this course provides a review of the basic concepts of ground-water flow and emphasizes the process of simulation analysis. A series of problem sets are presented that are designed to illustrate concepts such as the development of conceptual models and strategies for model calibration. This course is intended as an introduction to groundwater flow modeling. Hydrologists with extensive modeling experience looking primarily for an introduction to the new features of MODFLOW-6 should not take this course.

Target Audience: This course is open to all USGS employees who meet the requirements described above in Course Prerequisites. Cooperators may attend if sponsored by a local USGS office.

Prerequisites: Completion of course GW2192 (Ground-Water Flow Systems Analysis & Modeling) or equivalent university courses is recommended but not required. Familiarity with the Microsoft Windows computer operating system will be helpful.

What to Bring: Students will use their own laptop computers during the class. Microsoft Windows 7 or later is required.
