  1. Groundwater modelling : an introduction with sample programs in BASIC

    Kinzelbach, Wolfgang
    Amsterdam ; New York : Elsevier Science Publishers, 1986.

    With the growing concern about groundwater resources both with respect to quantity and quality, the need for groundwater modelling tools is increasing. Although there are a number of excellent introductions to the concepts of groundwater flow and pollution transport, the student or practising engineer wishing to develop a model and do practical work on the computer finds that there is still a gap between the understanding of concepts and the ability to handle the actual computations. A great deal of groundwater modelling software for personal computers and microcomputers has appeared recently, but taking these models from the shelf and applying them without a background on their capabilities often leads to disappointment and frustration. This book provides the reader with all necessary details to start modelling on his own. It gives a comprehensive introduction to the major techniques currently used in the modelling of groundwater flow and pollutant transport in groundwater.

  2. Groundwater overexploitation in the North China Plain : a path to sustainability

    Kinzelbach, Wolfgang
    Singapore : Springer, [2022]

    Over-pumping of aquifers is a worldwide problem, mainly caused by agricultural water use. Among its consequences are the falling dry of streams and wetlands, soil subsidence, die-off of phreatophytic vegetation, saline water intrusion, increased pumping cost and loss of storage needed for drought relief. Stopping or reversing the trend requires management interventions. The North China Plain serves as an example. A management system is set up for a typical county. It contains three components: monitoring, decision support based on modelling, and implementation in the field. Besides all monitoring data, the decision support module contains an irrigation calculator, a box model, and a distributed groundwater model to project the outcomes of different water allocation scenarios. In view of grain security, a solution combines an adaptation of the cropping system with imports of surface water from the South. The Open Access book does not only describe the problem and the path to its solution. It also gives access to nine manuals concerning methods used. They include computer programs and the game Save the Water. The Chinese experience should be of considerable interest to other regions in the world which suffer from over-pumping of aquifers.Over-pumping of aquifers is a worldwide problem, mainly caused by agricultural water use.

  3. 3D-groundwater modeling with PMWIN : a simulation system for modeling groundwater flow and transport processes

    Chiang, Wen-Hsing
    2nd ed. - Berlin ; New York : Springer, c2005.

    Processing Modflow is one of the most complete three-dimensional groundwater and transport simulation systems in the world. The text and the companion full-version software (PMWIN) offer a totally integrated simulation system. PMWIN comes with a professional graphical user-interface, supported models and programs and several other useful modeling tools. The graphical user-interface allow one to create and simulate models with ease and fun. It can import DXF and raster graphics and handle models with up to 1000 stress periods, 80 layers and 250,000 cells in each model layer. The model tools include a Presentation Tool, a Result Extractor, a Field Interpolator, a Field Generator, a Water Budget Calculator and a Graphic Viewer. Book and CD-ROM are targeted at novice and experienced groundwater modelers. The typical user is working as a hydrogeological or environmental consultant, in a water company, in a regulatory agency or a university.
