Water Use Site Retrieval - Lower Mississippi Gulf Arkansas

In 1977, the Congress of the United States recognized the need for uniform, current, and reliable information on water use and directed the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) to establish a National Water-Use Information Program (NWUIP) to complement the Survey's data on the availability and quality of the Nations water resources.

Groundwater Age Mixtures and Contaminant Trends Tool (GAMACTT)

The USGS Groundwater Age Mixtures and Contaminant Trends Tool (GAMACTT) can be used to explore the effects of basic aquifer properties and well configurations on groundwater age mixtures in groundwater discharge and on contaminant trends from varying nonpoint-source contaminant input scenarios.

WinSLAMM (Source Loading and Management Model): Parameter and standard land-use files for Wisconsin

The SLAMM model is used to identify sources of pollutants in urban stormwater runoff and to evaluate management alternatives for reduce pollutants. These files provide stormwater flow and pollutant-concentration data for calibrating and verifying SLAMM for use in Wisconsin (WinSLAMM).

Soil-Water-Balance (SWB) for estimating groundwater recharge

The Soil-Water-Balance (SWB) model has been developed to allow estimates of potential recharge to be made quickly and easily. The code calculates components of the water balance at a daily time-step by means of a modified version of the Thornthwaite-Mather soil-moisture-balance approach.

PEST++ Version 3: A Parameter ESTimation code optimized for large environmental models - Version 3

The PEST++ software suite is object-oriented universal computer code written in C++ that expands on and extends the algorithms included in PEST, a widely used parameter estimation code written in Fortran. PEST++ is designed to lower the barriers of entry for users and developers while providing efficient algorithms that can accommodate large, highly parameterized problems.

GENIE Version 2: A general model-independent TCP/IP run manager

GENIE Version 2 is a model-independent suite of programs that can be used to generally distribute, manage, and execute multiple model runs via a TCP/IP network. The suite consists of a file distribution interface, a run manager, a run executer, and a routine that can be compiled as part of a program and used to exchange model runs with the run manager.
