The groundwater tools are used to perform rudimentary advection–dispersion modeling of constituents in groundwater. The following are sample applications using the tools.
Tracking a contaminant
In the following image, Porous Puff and Particle Track were used to examine the distribution and track of a contaminant.
Water supply contamination
The following image demonstrates tracking particles from a contaminant spill to a pumping well using the Particle Track tool. From this analysis, you can determine whether the contaminant is getting into the drinking water for a nearby town.
Understanding contaminant flow
In the following image, the flow direction of the groundwater is determined using the Darcy Flow and Darcy Velocity tools to understand how a contaminant will move through the groundwater.
