Two basic approaches are provided in GMS for constructing a MODFLOW model: the model can be completely defined using the tools in the 3D Grid module, or the model can be defined with the aid of the feature objects in the Map module. Also, scatter points and solids can be used to define layer elevation, and boreholes can be used with TPROGS to create material sets for the 3D grid.

Basic Steps in Building a MODFLOW Model

The basic steps in building a MODFLOW model include:

  1. Build a 3D grid defining the extents of the model. Two approaches are available:
  2. Initialize MODFLOW
  3. Assign boundary conditions and model stresses, including sources and sinks
  4. Define layer elevations
  5. Assign material properties
  6. Run MODFLOW
