ALL GROUNDWATER HYDROLOGY WORK IS MODELING A Model is a representation of a system Modeling begins when one formulates a concept of a hydrologic system continues with application of for example Darcy39s Law or the Theis equation to the problem and may culminate in a complex numerical simulation MODELS can be used BENEFICIALLY and for DECEPTION GROUND WATER MODELING WHY MODEL To make predictions about a groundwater system s response to a stress To understand the System To design eld studies Use as a thinking tool Characterize the system Governing equation of Ground Water Flow 3K K

Properties Boundary Conditions V Electrical analog model of the ChampaignL Urbana Illinois area groundwater system circa 1960 The top panel is a circuit of resistors and capacitors representing the regional model Measuring the voltage at various locations in the circuit is equivalent to measuring head in the aquifer The middle level includes a local model of a portion of the regional model at both the same scale and twice the scale The lower area includes the controls for imposing current on the model These models are very difficult to calibrate because each 39change of material properties involves removing and resoldering the resistors and capacitors EMPIRICAL MODEL A Mathematical Fit to Data Unrelated to Process Equations eg Manning39s Equation V149R1 3S 2 n where V average velocity

Recharge is a fixed flux and headgradient will be calculated to accommodate that recharge eg High recharge gtgt High heads M and h2 are fixed heads and flux will be calculated to accommodate those heads eg a high M will shift the divide to the left of the problem domain and produce large influx that joins the recharge and discharges to the right if h2 is very low that influx will be even higher
