Standard Guide for Describing the Functionality of a Ground-Water Modeling Code
|Publication Date:||10 February 1999|
1.1 This guide presents a systematic approach to the classification and description of computer codes used in ground-water modeling. Due to the complex nature of fluid flow and biotic and chemical transport in the subsurface, many different types of ground-water modeling codes exist, each having specific capabilities and limitations. Determining the most appropriate code for a particular application requires a thorough analysis of the problem at hand and the required and available resources, as well as a detailed description of the functionality of potentially applicable codes.
