Summary

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) refined the spatial and temporal discretization of a previously modeled area (Phase 1: https://pubs.usgs.gov/sir/2008/5143/ and Phase 2: https://pubs.usgs.gov/sir/2010/5149/) which focused on a 30,000-square-mile area of the High Plains aquifer. Regional groundwater-flow models were constructed to evaluate the effects of groundwater withdrawal on stream base flow in the Elkhorn and Loup River Basins, Nebraska. The model was calibrated to match groundwater level and base-flow data from the stream-aquifer system during the pre-1940 through 2010 period (including predevelopment [pre-1895], early development [1895–1940], and historical development [1940 through 2010] conditions) using an automated parameter- [...]

Purpose

This groundwater model was created to characterize groundwater resources and the interaction of groundwater with streams and other hydrologic features within Central Nebraska. The development of the model input and output files included in this data release are documented in U.S. Geological Survey Scientific Investigations Report 2018-5106 (https://doi.org/10.3133/sir20185106).
