This model archive contains the Soil-Water-Balance (SWB) model used to simulate potential mean annual recharge in the Grand Canyon region for 1981 through 2016. The simulated results are described in the associated U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2022-5037. The model archive includes all the necessary files to document and run the SWB model and process the results as displayed in the accompanying report. The directories in the archive are presented each as a separate .zip file and include an "ancillary" directory, a "bin" directory, a "georef" directory, a "model directory, an "output" directory, and a "source" directory. There is a README file describing all the files and directories in the archive and information on how to run the model.

Conceptual models of groundwater flow in the Grand Canyon region, Arizona
Conceptual models of groundwater flow in the Grand Canyon region, ArizonaThe conceptual models of groundwater flow outlined herein synthesize what is known and hypothesized about the groundwater-flow systems that discharge to the Grand Canyon of Arizona. These models interpret the hydrogeologic characteristics and hydrologic dynamics of the physical systems into a framework for understanding key aspects of the physical systems as they relate to groundwater flow and conAuthorsJacob E.
