Sorab Panday and Don De Marco
Code status: Commercial code (Hydrogeologic Inc.)
Description. HydroGeoLogic Inc. developed MOD-HMS (MODFLOW - Hydrologic Modeling
System) for numerical simulation of complex groundwater-surface water interactions. According
to its authors, MOD-HMS is a comprehensive, physically-based spatially-distributed model that
overcomes both the functional and computational limitations of previous models. In particular,
MOD-HMS integrates all components of the hydrologic cycle in a single model that utilizes a
mass conservative approach whereby the surface water flow equations are fully coupled with the
3-D, variably saturated groundwater flow equations. The authors claim that this approach is
significantly more robust than previous conjunctive approaches that rely on linkage of separate
surface water and groundwat...
