Changed line 40 from:

ZOODRM is a distributed modelling code for calculating spatial and temporal variations in groundwater recharge. The model is fully compatible with the groundwater flow model ZOOMQ3D but can be used to produce a time series of recharge for other groundwater modelling codes. The model incorporates a standard Penman-Grindley type soil moisture balance method but also includes procedures for recharge estimation in arid countries, irrigated regions and urban areas. The FAO method is also included in the model as is surface run-off routing.

The model incorporates a standard Penman-Grindley type soil moisture balance method but also includes procedures for recharge estimation in arid countries, irrigated regions and urban areas.The FAO soil moisture balance method, and a simplified version of this algorithm, are included in the model. The latest version of the code also includes overland flow routing and storage, interaction with lakes and reservoirs, rainfall interception, and a groundwater flow model.

ZOOMQ3D (.exe, 248Kb) is a numerical model which advances the art of model development on two vitally important fronts. It incorporates a mesh refinement procedure which aids the solution of problems related to scale. This is the first of its contributions. The second is that it uses object-oriented techniques as the basis for the program. Whilst this is well-established in the development of general commercial software, it represents a novel approach to groundwater model structure. It is of considerable value in maintaining the code but it is in changing model behaviour that it holds most promise for modellers. Further, the direct correspondence between computer-based objects and real-world features makes the link between numerical and conceptual models very easy to see, even to those with no programming expertise.

The model is fully compatible with the groundwater flow model ZOOMQ3D but can be used to produce a time series of recharge for other groundwater modelling codes. The model incorporates a standard Penman-Grindley type soil moisture balance method but also includes procedures for recharge estimation in arid countries, irrigated regions and urban areas. The FAO method is also included in the model as is surface run-off routing.

ZETUP (.exe, 208Kb) is the pre-processor for the finite difference groundwater flow model ZOOMQ3D. It is used to construct the model grid, which may contain multiple areas of local grid refinement, and to create rivers within these complex meshes. ZETUP produces the input files required by ZOOMQ3D that define the structure of the model mesh and the structure of rivers. It also produces templates of all of the other files required by ZOOMQ3D in the correct format. These can subsequently be modified using a text editor to complete the model specification. Finally, it produces a set of files that enable the visualisation and checking of the model structure. If modifications to the structure of the model are required, it can be reloaded into ZETUP for alteration.

ZOOMQ3D groundwater flow model Author: Chris Jackson Numerical groundwater flow models have become an essential tool in the solution of hydrogeological problems. Their importance arises because they are the only real means by which testing of hypotheses can be conducted. It is common to produce what is referred to as a conceptual model, a description of the processes believed to be operating in the groundwater system. However, to assess the validity of the concepts it is essential to produce results from a more physically based model which can be compared with field information. If there is a high degree of similarity between physical model and reality, then the conceptual model can be treated with some confidence. Numerical models provide information based on the physics of the supposed processes and are therefore the best approximation to a physical model.

Fundamental difficulties arise in constructing a numerical model which is going to be able to be close to the real aquifer. Amongst them are recognising the true mechanisms and finding an acceptable numerical implementation. The ability to look at behaviour on different scales is also important. While a relatively coarse approximation, based on a grid spacing of hundreds of metres, may be acceptable for regional flow through a large expanse of relatively homogeneous aquifer, this will not be adequate for small-scale local behaviour. Examples such as the response of an abstraction well or the representation of a small stream will not be dealt with accurately on a coarse mesh.

The process of model development and construction is iterative. Components of the conceptual model are frequently found to be inadequate and require changes. The inability to reproduce features from the real aquifer brings these inadequacies to light. Change and the introduction of new processes are fundamental to the development process.

ZOOMQ3D (.exe, 248Kb) is a numerical model which advances the art of model development on two vitally important fronts. It incorporates a mesh refinement procedure which aids the solution of problems related to scale. This is the first of its contributions. The second is that it uses object-oriented techniques as the basis for the program. Whilst this is well-established in the development of general commercial software, it represents a novel approach to groundwater model structure. It is of considerable value in maintaining the code but it is in changing model behaviour that it holds most promise for modellers. Further, the direct correspondence between computer-based objects and real-world features makes the link between numerical and conceptual models very easy to see, even to those with no programming expertise.

ZOOPT particle tracking Author: Chris Jackson

ZOOPT (.exe, 248Kb) is the particle tracking code associated with the groundwater flow model ZOOMQ3D. The code enables the definition of steady-state and time-variant path lines in three dimensions. Particles can be tracked in both the forward and reverse directions in steady-state flow fields enabling the rapid definition of borehole catchments, recharge and discharge areas and the visualisation of groundwater flow fields, for example. The program also enables the visualisation of steady-state particle tracks that are based on the node-by-node flows at a specific instant of a time-variant simulation.

ZOODRM distributed recharge model Authors: Majdi Mansour & Andrew Hughes ZOODRM (.exe, 264Kb) is a distributed modelling code for calculating spatial and temporal variations in groundwater recharge. The model is fully compatible with the groundwater flow model ZOOMQ3D but can be used to produce a time series of recharge for other groundwater modelling codes. The model incorporates a standard Penman-Grindley type soil moisture balance method but also includes procedures for recharge estimation in arid countries, irrigated regions and urban areas. The FAO method is also included in the model as is surface run-off routing.
