A Groundwater Modeling Workshop: "Simulation of Groundwater Flow with Freeze and Thaw"

Event Type: Conferences and Workshops

When: 7 November 2011 to 11 November 2011

Where: Montreal, Canada


The course is for those interested in using groundwater models to solve practical or theoretical hydrology problems involving freeze/thaw. Participants may be consultants, hydrologists, hydrogeologists, engineers, faculty and students, staff from governments, consultancies, and universities are welcome. Some experience in the application of numerical models to study groundwater problems is recommended.

Workshop participants will learn to set up, run, and interpret a highly-configurable variable-density groundwater flow and solute/energy transport simulator (U.S. Geological Survey's SUTRA code) in a new version that incorporates the dynamic freeze-thaw process.
