MT3D-USGS: Groundwater Solute Transport Simulator for MODFLOW

MT3D-USGS is a USGS updated release of the groundwater solute transport code MT3DMS. MT3D-USGS includes new transport modeling capabilities to accommodate flow terms calculated by MODFLOW packages that were previously unsupported by MT3DMS and to provide greater flexibility in the simulation of solute transport and reactive solute transport.

MODFLOW-2005: USGS Three-Dimensional Finite-Difference Ground-Water Model

MODFLOW 6 is presently the core MODFLOW version distributed by the USGS, but MODFLOW-2005 (the previous core version) is still actively maintained and supported. MODFLOW-2005 simulates steady and nonsteady flow in an irregularly shaped flow system in which aquifer layers can be confined,...

GSFLOW: Coupled Groundwater and Surface-Water Flow Model

Groundwater and Surface-water FLOW (GSFLOW) was developed to simulate coupled groundwater and surface-water resources. The model is based on the integration of the U.S. Geological Survey Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) and the U.S. Geological Survey Modular Groundwater Flow Model (MODFLOW).

SPARROW Modeling Program

SPARROW is a popular watershed modeling technique, distributed by the USGS, that estimates the amount of a contaminant transported from inland watersheds to larger water bodies by linking monitoring data with information on watershed characteristics and contaminant sources.

National Streamflow Statistics Program (NSS)

The USGS develops regression equations for estimating streamflow statistics for every state, Puerto Rico, and a number of metropolitan areas in the U.S. These equations have been compiled into the National Streamflow Statistics (NSS) Program for design, planning, management, and regulatory purposes. These estimates are often needed at ungaged sites where no observed flow data are available....

The Groundwater Toolbox: A Graphical and Mapping Interface for Analysis of Hydrologic Data

The Groundwater Toolbox is a graphical and mapping interface for analysis of hydrologic data. It provides methods to estimate many of the components of the water budget for a hydrologic basin, including precipitation, streamflow, base flow, runoff, groundwater recharge and evapotranspiration.
