NAME modflow-gui - Preprocessor and postprocessor graphical-user interfaces for preparing MODFLOW-2005, MODFLOW-2000, MODFLOW-96, MOC3D, MODPATH, and ZONEBDGT input data and viewing model output for use within Argus Open Numerical Environments (Argus ONE) ABSTRACT
This report documents a new version of the MODFLOW Graphical User Interface
for Argus ONE (MODFLOW GUI) that adds support for the U.S. Geological Survey's
MODFLOW-2000 and the Reservoir, Transient Leakage, Interbed Storage, Lake, and
Gage packages. The new version can also import existing MODFLOW-88 and
MODFLOW-96 models. A utility program, GW_Chart, was developed in conjunction
with the MODFLOW GUI and is used for post-processing of the output of MODFLOW.
Also, in conjunction with the development of the MODFLOW GUI, three utility Plug-In
Extensions (PIE's) were developed. One PIE facilitates importing gridded data into
Argus ONE. This is helpful when attempting to reproduce an existing model in Argus
ONE. Another PIE allows editing of data points on data layers. A third utility PIE
allows expressions to be evaluated at specific X,Y coordinates. A series of example
models were created and can be used to learn about the features of MODFLOW, Argus
ONE, and the MODFLOW GUI.
Note: The Argus ONE interface only works with MODFLOW-2005, MODFLOW-2000, MODFLOW-96
and not with earlier versions of MODFLOW.
MODFLOW-GUI supports the following packages: BAS5, BAS6, BCF5, BCF6, LPF, WEL5,
RIV5, DRN5, GHB5, RCH5, EVT5, SOR5, SIP5, PCG2, DE4, STR1, HFB1, HFB6, FHB1, IBS1, RES1, TLK1,
LAK3, GAG, ETS1, DRT1, LMG1, HYDMOD, OBS, HOB, GBOB, DROB, RVOB, ADOB, SEN, PES, CHD,
ADV2, CHFB, HUF1, LMT6, MNW1, MNW2, DAFLOW, SUB, SFR2, GMG, UZF, SWT,
MOC3D/GWT, MODPATH, ZONEBDGT, MT3DMS, SEAWAT-2000, and MODFLOW-GWM.
The following capabilities are NOT yet supported:
DATA REQUIREMENTS In order to use MODFLOW-96, initial conditions, hydraulic properties, and stresses must be specified for every model cell in the finite-difference grid. OUTPUT OPTIONS Output produced by the MODFLOW-GUI preprocessor is a complete set of files for use with MODFLOW-96 and MOC3D. SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS MODFLOW-GUI is compiled for use with Argus ONE version 4.1, revision t or later, on personal computers running Microsoft Windows 9x or NT.
