This three-day, hands-on experience workshop will cover practical aspects of developing conceptual and numeric models of groundwater flow in karst terrains. Model conceptualization and data preparation for input into numeric model will be performed in a GIS environment, whereas numeric modeling will be performed using computer program Groundwater Vistas, a graphic user interface, and the latest modules of Modflow specifically developed for karst groundwater problems – CFP (Conduit Flow Process) and USG (Un-Structured Grids).

Instructors and Tools

Instructors of the workshop will be Neven Kresic (Amec Environment and Infrastructure, Inc., USA) and Alex Mikszewski (Woodard & Curran, USA). All necessary documentation will be prepared by the instructors and sent to participants before the workshop.

All participants will be provided a fully-functional newest version of Groundwater Vistas free of charge during the workshop time (full version-confirmed by Environmental Simulations, Inc. (ESI)).  The program will remain active for 30 days following completion of the workshop. Additionally, each participant will be able to purchase Groundwater Vistas with significant discount directly from their author (Jim Rumbaugh).
