Groundwater Modeling of Nitrates

December 2nd, 2015|Categories: Visual MODFLOW Flex|Tags: , |

Modeling Fate and Transport of Nitrates from Septic Systems, Sewage Effluent, and Agricultural Practices Nitrate groundwater contamination can originate from a variety of sources including septic system, untreated raw sewage effluent, and agricultural application of fertilizers and pesticides. Visual MODFLOW is commonly used for modeling the fate of nitrates in groundwater. Various approaches can be used, but [...]

Modeling Groundwater Conditions at Mine Sites with Visual MODFLOW Flex

October 29th, 2014|Categories: Groundwater Modeling, Visual MODFLOW Flex|Tags: , |

Visual MODFLOW is often used to model the groundwater conditions at mine sites. These models are intended to assist in the decision making process for issues that are controlled or affected by groundwater. A groundwater model can be used to describe the groundwater flow system at the mine site (Kuchling et al.), assess impacts of various [...]

Why is my contaminant plume not moving?

October 14th, 2014|Categories: Groundwater Modeling, Visual MODFLOW Flex|Tags: , |

Accurate numerical simulation of the movement of dissolved chemicals (solutes) in groundwater requires definition of chemical properties such as dispersion, sorption and species parameters; as well as identification of transport boundaries to add solute to the flow system, initial contaminant conditions, and a flow solution. The flow solution provides groundwater velocities to calculate advection, which is [...]
