Observation Process

Scroll Prev Top Next More

The Observation process is used to compare model-generated values of head, flux, or advective transport with observed values.  During model calibration, the goal is to reduce the discrepencies between the two.  Many of the input files for the observation process are linked to specific input files for the Groundwater Flow process.
