The text is intended for undergraduate and graduate level courses in applied groundwater modeling and as a comprehensive reference for environmental consultants and scientists/engineers in industry and governmental agencies.Explains how to formulate a conceptual model of a groundwater system and translate it into a numerical modelDemonstrates how modeling concepts, including boundary conditions, are implemented in two groundwater flow codes-- MODFLOW (for finite differences) and FEFLOW (for finite elements)Discusses particle tracking methods and codes for flowpath analysis and advective transport of contaminantsSummarizes parameter estimation and uncertainty analysis approaches using the code PEST to illustrate how concepts are implementedDiscusses modeling ethics and preparation of the modeling reportIncludes Boxes that amplify and supplement topics covered in the textEach chapter presents lists of common modeling errors and problem sets that illustrate concepts
