Online Course: Introduction to Groundwater Modelling with MODFLOW

An interactive and practical introduction to developing groundwater flow models

MODFLOW is a free software that allows users to model the groundwater flow. Developed by the U.S. Geological Survey, the program is used by hydrogeologists to simulate the flow of groundwater through aquifers.

Follow along with instructor Konrad Miotlinski, an instructor in a variety of modelling courses for 7 years, as we demonstrate the creation of a groundwater model using MODFLOW. This interactive session will allow you to ask questions and interact with other students as you build a model in real-time, as you develop the skills and knowledge to be able to run a groundwater model.

  • The course is delivered via the learning platform and online video classroom
  • 2 live and interactive sessions of 2 hours over two weeks
    • Tuesday, 1 October, 10:30am (Sydney Time)
    • Tuesday, 8 October, 10:30am (Sydney Time)
    • Sessions are recorded & uploaded to the learning platform if you cannot attend live.
  • Pre-and-post-course materials to read through via the learning platform.
  • Exercises via training manual between the 2 week’s live sessions.

Preparation: Pre-course reading and video watching is encouraged. There is also an opportunity to tailor the sessions to your direct questions via the initial survey. After the first week you will be given some exercises to complete, prior to the next session.

Requirements: A good internet connection and MODFLOW.

Content: This course consists of interactive training – our Instructor will step you through the building of a groundwater flow model using MODFLOW. You will then run, animate, interpret and troubleshoot your model.

Outcome: On completion of the course attendees will be issued with a Certificate of Participation.
