MODFLOW-2005 and MODPATH models used to simulate hydraulic tomography pumping tests and identify a fracture network, former Naval Air Warfare Center, West Trenton, NJ

June 17, 2019

MODFLOW-2005 groundwater flow models were developed to simulate 47 pumping tests conducted for a hydraulic tomography experiment in fractured rocks underlying the former Naval Air Warfare Center, West Trenton, New Jersey. These flow models simulate the change in water level during the pumping tests, which range from about 45 to 60 minutes in duration. MODFLOW-2005 models were also developed to simulate groundwater flow in different directions across the hydraulic conductivity field estimated by the hydraulic tomography, and MODPATH simulations were conducted to identify flow paths in these
simulations. This USGS data release contains all of the input and output files for the simulations, which are described in the associated journal article (
