    Importing 2-D scatter data

    Check your license by going to the Help | Registration command. I am guessing that the 2D Scatter module is not enabled. You can contact sales@aquaveo.com to take care of that if you want to.
  2. Look at the Guassian simulation tool with the 2D Scatter points. It can generate these types of arrays.

    MT3D executable crashes and OUT file stops at THKSAT

    What version of MODFLOW-NWT?

    RCH output

    Based on some further testing. I was not able to reproduce this problem in the latest version of 10.3. If you follow these steps you will get an ASCII *.dat file with all timesteps. 1. Duplicate the RCH Rate item in the MODFLOW\RCH\RCH Rate. This will create a new dataset. 2. Right click on the newly created dataset and choose the Export option from the menu. In the dialog, select the "ASCII Dataset Files (*.dat)" filter and save the file.

    Transient spatially distributed recharge

    The new feature will be in the next version of GMS (most likely 10.4).

    How do link GMS and Matlab software?

    You may want to give a better desciption of what you are trying to accomplish; then others can give advice.

    RCH output

    This looks like a bug. When you export a *.dat ascii file it should export all time steps. I have reported a bug.

    Problems Assigning Horizons with complex model

    The best advice I can give is to start very, very simple and add complexity as you go.

    Do you have a *.prj file that uses this datum? There are some new options with Coordinate Systems in the development version. I would like to test this datum to see if it works.

    MODFLOW Tutorial project crashes

    I have verified the bug and made a bug report.

    ERROR: transient modflow forward run

    Try going into the pilot point options dialog from the MODFLOW parameters dialog. This usually forces GMS to interpolate the pilot points to the grid again.

    Observation Wells in Transient Model

    Contact support. It is difficult to diagnose these kinds of problems without being able to see the project.

    Transient PEST Run with Pilot Points

    I would contact support so they can look at your transient model.

    export color fill or block fill as polygon shape

    You can export the grid as a polygon shape file. The data set value will also export so that you could reproduce block-fill in another GIS program.

    MT3D-USGS with dry cells

    Is there a specific reason you want to use MT3D-USGS with mf2k5? There is not any additional functionality over MT3DMS in the current GMS interface. MT3D-USGS has additional functionality for working with models with dry cells but it must be a MODFLOW-NWT model for that functionality to work and you must turn on the "DRYCELL" option in the BTN package.

    MODFLOW Solution Properties Dialog

    MODFLOW-USG or another version of MODFLOW? Errors for MODFLOW-USG are computed using utilities from PEST. The other versions of MODFLOW do internal calculations for these errors.

    Mark flooded Cells

    I apologize for the inconvenience. I have confirmed that this is a problem. It will be fixed in the next release; we will add a test to make sure that it stays fixed.

    MT3DMS Plume Center of Mass

    There is not a tool in GMS that does this. Out of curiosity, what is your definition of the center of mass of a plume?

    Array-based parameters with clusters and instances

    This tutorial covers parameter clusters and instances: http://gmstutorials-10.3.aquaveo.com/MODFLOW-AdvancedParameterOptions.pdf Be aware that parameters with clusters and instances are usually more difficult to work with than parameters specified with "key values."
  20. The output control dialog is specific to the MODFLOW output control package. The items that you mention are not part of the MODFLOW package. However, you can compute each of the items that you have listed using the data set calculator.
  21. Speedy When you run PEST on the computer with the problem can you see if another program is running: tail.exe? This program is used to see the text being written to the pest output file. I am assuming that there is something wrong with that program on your computer. I am not 100% percent sure this is the problem but it is worth checking.

    Index is out of range

    Are you using the latest version of GMS? If not, try that first. If you are, then it is possible that there is a bug and you should contact support.

    Transient spatially distributed recharge

    We will be adding a feature to the next version of GMS to apply rasters to various stress periods in the Areal packages (RCH, EVT, ETS). There will not be a need to import these into your project they can be processed directly from the RCH package.

    MT3DMS Error with MODFLOW-NWT

    SEAWAT is based on MODFLOW 2000, not NWT. That may cause you problems. Also, if you use MODFLOW-NWT and your model includes SFR, LAK, or UZF then MODFLOW will write an HFF file that is in a format the MT3DMS does not recognize and you will have to use MT3D-USGS.

    LPF package

    It is difficult to answer this question without seeing your model. I don't know of any reported bugs with this feature so you may have missed a step. If you need further help feel free to contact support.
