  • Basics of groundwater
  • Theoretical background of groundwater flow
  • Aquifer types
  • Groundwater flow equation
  • Concept and steps of groundwater modelling
  • Creating Models using grid approach

Also, during our course we will use and practice on many 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 difference manually, to read spreadsheets and extract CSV files
  • Global Mapper: for extracting Digital Elevation Models (DEM), rectify images and convert 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 modelling and how the MODFLOW code uses 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 🙂
