By
the end of today's class, you
should be able to do the following:
v Ground Water Modeling: Conceptual Model
 List
and describe the components of a conceptual model,
the first part of
constructing a ground water model.
 For
a specific study site, identify and characterize each component of a
conceptual model.
v Ground Water Modeling: Numerical Model
 Explain
the difference between a conceptual model and a numerical model.
 Explain
the purpose of a numerical model grid.
 Explain
how Darcy's law
is used in a numerical model
v Ground Water Modeling: Practice
 Describe
the steps in constructing a model, as given on pages 526527 of the
Fetter textbook.
 Download
and install the modeling program Graphic
Groundwater, authored by Dr. Steven Esling at
SUI/Carbondale.
 Run Graphic Groundwater for a given
study site.
