GMS packages

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Could someone help. Which package can one use when assigning effective and total porosoty values to a model. Furthermore, which input file would contain these values?

Regards,

Brenda

Brenda,

The only package with MODFLOW that I could find that uses porosity is the ADV2 package. As far as I know, GMS does not have an interface for ADV2, so you would need to work with it outside of GMS. MODPATH and the MT3D basic transport package also use porosity. What model are you working with?

Hi Erik,

Thanks for your reply. I am working with a steady state model developed in GMS environment.

I am trying to link the model with ArcGIS 9.2 using an external processor. This external processor is basically an executable file I am writing using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 which is called within ArcGIS 9.2. It is supposed to interogate the model and retrieve the essential hydrogeological data which include the geometric boundaries of the model and key model parameters (recharge, hydraulic conductivity, porosity, storage coeficient and specific yield). The challenge I have is to identify the right input files from the model that contain this information.

Any suugestion to help me do this will be highly appreciated.

Regards,

Brenda

You may be interested in looking at Arc Hydro Ground Water. This is a data model and a set of tools that run inside of Arc Map. There is a tool to import a MODFLOW simulation into a geodatabase. For more information look here: http://www.aquaveo.com/archydro-groundwater

There are also some tutorials associated with the MODFLOW analyst tools here: http://www.aquaveo.com/ahgw-tutorials
