remove warning when MODFLOW is set to steady state when there is a transient coverage

Recommended Posts

Remove the "MODFLOW is steady state and one or more of the coverages are transient” warning that appears when trying to save a MODFLOW simulation with transient data in the map module while the MODFLOW simulation is steady state.

(requested by a user who says that it gets on their nerves while working with transient models. They said that the warning will always come up since that will always be the case – steady state and transient coverages.)

I really would appreciate this - it really gets on my nerves!

Buy the way, what's the purpose of that message? It is as relevant as to state a message that you have Head Obs -Data coverages.... or Well coverages or whatever other Data???

If you go to the MODFLOW | Observations menu command a dialog will come up that will show you the observation coverages that you want to include in your MODFLOW simulation. The purpose of the warning is to tell the user that they have a transient MODFLOW model but they have selected (in the MODFLOW Observation dialog) to include a coverage that is not transient. Those observations will not be written to the HOB file. To make the warning go away simply uncheck the coverage that is not compatible with your MODFLOW simulation.
