Unformatted text preview: isn’t exhaustive. To
give just one example, the FRAC3DVS code (Ed Sudicky, University Waterloo, Canada) has not
been documented here, although it includes several features of interest in the framework of this
review. Also, it should be noted that some of the codes are commercial, while others are noncommercial and/or research codes (publicly available).
We present here a representative selection of computer codes geared towards GW flow Modeling,
with at least some coupling aspects taken into consideration: first and foremost saltwater density
coupling, and secondly, the coupling to surface flow and other hydrogeologic processes. A.1 - MODFLOW (MODular 3-D finite difference FLOW) Authors: McDonald and Harbaugh 1988

Some packages are not publicly available, e.g. AMG (Algebraic Multi Grid).
Description: Originally a 3D finite-difference GW flow code, MODFLOW has evolved over the
years to become a family of...
