Computer simulation of reservoir depletion and oil flow from the Macondo well following the Deepwater Horizon blowout
This model estimates, by simulation, the reservoir pressure, flow rate, and volume of oil discharged, and the report discusses the uncertainty in the estimates.
Ground-water flow and other computer simulations for Utah
Identifies computer models in USGS publications developed to study ground water for many areas of Utah.
SEAWAT: A Computer Program for Simulation of Variable-Density Groundwater Flow and Multi-Species Solute and Heat Transport
Software based on the MODFLOW modeling framework, used for studies of saltwater intrusion coastal aquifers, storage and recovery in brackish limestone aquifers, and brine migration in continental aquifers.
A Magnitude 7.1 Earthquake in the Tacoma Fault Zone-A Plausible Scenario for the Southern Puget Sound Region, Washington
Scientific description of the likely effects of a significant earthquake on this densely populated area.
Boston Harbor Studies: the fate of sediments and contaminants in Massachusetts Bay
Boston Harbor/Massachusetts Bay Studies research project conducted as part of Boston Harbor cleanup to predict the fate of contaminants and sediments introduced to Massachusetts' coastal waters from sources that include Boston sewage outfall.
Drought and deluge: Effects of recent climate variability on groundwater levels in eastern Arkansas
Water levels in wells completed in the Mississippi River Valley alluvial aquifer and the Sparta aquifer in eastern Arkansas respond to variability associated with annual precipitation.
Possible effects of groundwater pumping on surface water in the Verde Valley, Arizona
We applied a groundwater model to simulate effects of groundwater pumping and artificial recharge on surface water in this area. Results show effects of pumping or recharge on streamflow.
Watershed modeling applications in south Texas
Explains how mathematical simulations of watershed properties can help us understand the likely behavior of the water systems, putting the choices available to people in better perspective.
Watershed scale response to climate change--Black Earth Creek Basin, Wisconsin
Mathematical models predict overall streamflow, runoff, subsurface flow, groundwater flow, and soil moisture in this area in response to four different greenhouse gas emission scenarios.
Watershed scale response to climate change--Cathance Stream Basin, Maine
Mathematical models predict overall streamflow, runoff, subsurface flow, groundwater flow, and soil moisture in this area in response to four different greenhouse gas emission scenarios.
