Effects of Climate Variability and Change on Groundwater Resources of the United States

U.S. Geological Survey 2009

Groundwater is an important part of the global fresh water supply and is affected by climate. U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists are working with local, State, Federal, and international partners to understand how the availability and sustainability of groundwater resources in the United States will be affected by climate variability and change.

User’s guide for the Farm Package (FMP1) for the U.S. Geological Survey’s modular three-dimensional finite-difference groundwater flow model, MODFLOW-2000

U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY – 2006

There is a need to estimate dynamically integrated supply-and-demand components of irrigated agriculture as part of the simulation of surface-water and ground-water flow. To meet this need, a computer program called the Farm Process (FMP1) was developed for the U.S. Geological Survey three-dimensional finite-difference modular ground-water flow model, MODFLOW- 2000 (MF2K).
