MODFLOW Conceptual Model Approach, Part 2- East Texas

For this exercise we will complete part 2 of the conceptual model approach tutorial. In Part 1, we built a one-layer model using the conceptual model approach. The top and bottom elevations are all the same, meaning the model is completely flat. We will start with that model in this tutorial and turn it into a more complex and realistic model. Our model will end up with two layers and varying top and bottom elevations which match the terrain and geology. We also use an imported shapefile to define multiple recharge polygons to simulate a landfill.

To build the model, do the following:

1) Go to the Aquaveo tutorial website:

2) Download and unzip the the zip archive associated with the Conceptual Model Approach II tutorial exercise.

3) Download and open the PDF file associated with the Conceptual Model Approach II tutorial exercise.

4) Follow the instructions to complete the tutorial.
