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.

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.
