The National Groundwater Association (NGWA) recently published five white papers, three of which Jim Finegan, PhD, CHg, from Kleinfelder’s Riverside, CA office, co-authored as part of the NGWA Groundwater Modeling Advisory Panel.
The papers are:
The NGWA Groundwater Modeling Advisory Panel was formed in early 2016 with the goal of advancing the state of groundwater modeling through cooperative information exchange and outreach to groundwater professionals.
The nearly 40 prominent groundwater modelers who form the panel identified 33 topics of interest and categorized them into five groups for development. The papers were written as discussion documents and underwent peer review before being finalized and approved by the NGWA Board of Directors.
The papers address questions of:
The papers will serve as tools for groundwater modelers around the world by providing guidance in model selection, subject-specific modeling, and issues of uncertainty in modeling. Modelers will use these tools to better clarify the limitations of their work and to guide selection of models of appropriate complexity and type.
The papers can be viewed and downloaded from NGWA’s website.
