Groundwater Research and Management
In many regions of the world, the groundwater resource base and the social, economic and environmental systems dependent on it, are under threat from over-abstraction and pollution. Groundwater management, beyond pure development of the resource, is in its incipient phase in many countries and traditionally, management is only weakly hinged on research. When it comes to solving the problems, and putting into place management schemes, the impediments are numerous. Besides the lack of basic knowledge and information of the groundwater resource, knowledge of possible management options is also inadequate. This group aims to provide an interaction between groundwater researchers and managers to synthesize their knowledge, perceptions and ideas for improved groundwater management and research.

FEFLOW Users Group
FEFLOW (Finite Element subsurface FLOW system) is a sophisticated software package for the modeling of flow and transport processes in porous media under saturated and unsaturated conditions. Integral components are interactive graphics, a GIS interface, data regionalization and visualisation tools and powerful numeric techniques. These components ensure an efficient working process building the finite element mesh, assigning model properties and boundary conditions, running the simulation, and visualizing the results.

Groundwater Vistas Users Group
Groundwater Vistas (GV) is a sophisticated Windows graphical user interface for 3-D groundwater flow & transport modeling. GV couples a powerful model design system with comprehensive graphical analysis tools. GV is a model-independent graphical design system for MODFLOW MODPATH (both steady-state and transient versions), MT3DMS, MODFLOWT, MODFLOW-SURFACT, MODFLOW2000, GFLOW, RT3D, PATH3D, SEAWAT and PEST, the model-independent calibration software. The combination of PEST and GV's automatic sensitivity analysis make GV a powerful calibration tool.

GMS Users Group
GMS (Groundwater Modeling System) is an advanced, powerful, and comprehensive groundwater modeling package. GMS provides complete support for the USGS MODFLOW 3D finite difference, MODPATH 3D particle tracking, MT3DMS 3D multispecies contaminant transport, RT3D 3D bioremediation transport, SEAM3D 3D bioremediation transport, SEEP2D 2D finite element, and FEMWATER 3D finite

element groundwater models. Tools are provided for site characterization, model conceptualization, mesh and grid generation, geostatistics, telescopic model refinement, automated model calibration, and output post-processing. The program allows common information to be shared among different data types and groundwater models. GMS is completely graphical, and can display a defined groundwater model in either plan view or 3D oblique view, and can be rotated interactively.

SEAWAT Users Group
The SEAWAT program was developed to simulate three-dimensional, variable- density, transient ground-water flow in porous media. The source code for SEAWAT was developed by combining MODFLOW and MT3DMS into a single program that solves the coupled flow and solute-transport equations. The SEAWAT code follows a modular structure, and thus, new capabilities can be added with only minor modifications to the main program. SEAWAT reads and writes standard MODFLOW and MT3DMS data sets, although some extra input may be required for some SEAWAT simulations. This means that many of the existing pre- and post-processors can be used to create input data sets and analyze simulation results. Users familiar with MODFLOW and MT3DMS should have little difficulty applying SEAWAT to problems of variable-density groundwater flow. SEAWAT-2000 is the latest release of the SEAWAT computer program for simulation of three-dimensional, variable-density, transient ground-water flow in porous media. SEAWAT-2000 was designed by combining a modified version of MODFLOW2000 and MT3DMS into a single computer program. This group aims to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and experiences regarding use and application of SEAWAT software. To subscribe, send a blank email to

ArcGIS - Geographical Information System
Geographical Information Systems (GIS) are used to display, manipulate and analyse spatial (map) data. ArcGIS (produced by ESRI) is an integrated collection of software products for building a complete geographic information system (GIS). There are three ArcGIS desktop applications - ArcCatalog, ArcMap, and ArcToolbox. ArcCatalog is the application for managing your spatial data holdings, for managing your database designs,

and for recording and viewing metadata. ArcMap is used for all mapping and editing tasks, as well as for map-based analysis. ArcToolbox is used for data conversion and geoprocessing. Using these three applications together, you can perform any GIS task, simple to advanced, including mapping, data management, geographic analysis, data editing, and geoprocessing. There are also server-based ArcGIS products, as well as ArcGIS products for PDAs. Extensions can be purchased separately to increase the functionality of ArcGIS. GIS is a powerful tool for developing solutions for water resources such as assessing water quality and managing water resources on a local or regional scale. Hydrologists use GIS technology to integrate various data and applications into one, manageable system. ArcGIS with Arc Hydro gives you the flexibility to combine watershed datasets from one map source with stream and river networks. The suite of tools contained in Arc Hydro facilitate the creation, manipulation, and display of hydro features and objects within the ArcGIS environment. Use ArcGIS Spatial Analyst for hydrologic analysis such as calculating flow across an elevation surface, which provides the basis for creating stream networks and watersheds; calculating flow path length; and assigning stream orders. This group aims to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and experiences regarding application of GIS in Hydrology and Water Resources; and use of ArcGIS software (in general) and Arc Hydro (in particular).
