Summary

MODFLOW-2005 groundwater flow models were developed to simulate 47 pumping tests conducted for a hydraulic tomography experiment in fractured rocks underlying the former Naval Air Warfare Center, West Trenton, New Jersey. These flow models simulate the change in water level during the pumping tests, which range from about 45 to 60 minutes in duration. MODFLOW-2005 models were also developed to simulate groundwater flow in different directions across the hydraulic conductivity field estimated by the hydraulic tomography, and MODPATH simulations were conducted to identify flow paths in these simulations. This USGS data release contains all of the input and output files for the simulations described in the associated journal article (https://doi.org/10.1111/gwat.12915)

Purpose

The models were developed to analyze a hydraulic tomography experiment. The development of the model input and output files included in this data release, as well as discussion of the calibration and appication of the models, are documented in an article published in the journal Groundwater (https://doi.org/10.1111/gwat.12915)
