VS2DI model used to evaluate groundwater connectivity of wetlands in the Prairie Pothole Region, North Dakota

A two-dimensional, groundwater flow model (VS2DI) was developed to examine groundwater flow near
wetlands in the Prairie Pothole Region of North Dakota. Four model domains were created, the first
three are hypothetical or idealized and do not relate to an actual location. The fourth domain is a
cross section designed to replicate results presented in Winter and Carr
