NOTE: This exam is divided into 5 pages. At the bottom of each page is a button that submits your answers for the current page. You must use this button to enter your scores to the database. Clicking on the forward and back buttons of your browser or using one of the links shown above does NOT submit your answers.

At the end of this exam you will encounter a confirmation page that lets you either finish the exam or go back to page 1 so that you can cycle through all of the pages again and review your answers.You can loop through the pages as many times as you want as long as you finish the exam on time.

If you accidentally kill your browser, simply bring up a new one and log on to the test again. Your previously submitted answers will be retained.

1. (1 pt each) True or False:

a. T F  (modflow) Each package in MODFLOW is subdivided into a series of smaller routines called processes.

b. T F  (head-darcy) Effective porosity is typically greater than porosity.

c. T F  (modflow) The drain, stream-aquifer interaction, and general head packages all require the input of a conductance term for the cells where the source/sink is applied.

d. T F  (modflow) The CHD package is used to simulate sheetpiles, slurry trenches, and low permeability faults.

e. T F  (gw-concepts) Parsimony is defined as finding a balance between model complexity and simplicity.

f. T F  (modflow) Springs are typically simulated in MODFLOW using the Drain package.

g. T F  (gw-concepts) The groundwater table corresponds to the points where the total head equals the elevation head.

h. T F  (gms) The units for length, time, mass, etc. that you specify when you begin to build a GMS project are required so that GMS can convert all of your input data to a common system before you save your files and run MODFLOW.

i. T F  (head-darcy) Water will always flow from a high elevation to a low elevation.

j. T F  (concmod) Most aquifer systems are in state of equilibrium best represented by a steady state model.
