Models and Tools
MODFLOW One-Water Hydrologic Flow Model—Conjunctive Use Simulation Software (MF-OWHM) is a MODFLOW-2005 based integrated hydrologic model designed for the analysis of conjunctive-use management. The term “integrated” refers to the tight coupling of groundwater flow, surface-water flow, landscape processes, aquifer compaction and subsidence, reservoir operations, and conduit (karst) flow.
Surface Water Models
Scientific models of complex water resource systems help us understand and experiment with the behavior of those systems. Most scientific modeling today requires the use of software that can be hard to understand, expensive to build and maintain, and present little online access. Many of these challenges can be tackled through the use of software that bridges the capabilities of water resource system modeling and the needs of water resource stakeholders. The goal of the SWIM project is to advance water sustainability research capabilities through the integration, execution and interpretation of water models and participatory reasoning processes. Using the meaning of data and models, SWIM facilitates interpretations of water availability in the US Southwest and North of Mexico for stakeholder-driven analysis from the socio-environmental perspective.
Ground Water Models
GemPy is an open-source tool for generating 3D structural geological models in Python. As such, it enables you to create complex combinations of stratigraphical and structural features such as folds, faults, and unconformities. It was furthermore designed to enable probabilistic modeling to address parameter and model uncertainties.
