In this 1-day in-person course (conducted twice), we will discuss the basic principles of groundwater modelling using iMOD Suite. The iMOD Suite provides tools to efficiently build and visualize groundwater models.
Deltares is working to integrate and improve our groundwater software. Therefore, iMOD is extended with a new iMOD Suite to link to the latest developments on the MODFLOW and on the changing requirements in the field of groundwater modelling, most pressing currently the support of unstructured grids.
We created the new iMOD Suite to aid pre- and post-processing unstructured groundwater models. Furthermore, a second goal of this suite was to better connect to the latest developments in the data science ecosystem, by utilizing:
The iMOD Suite offers different modules which support modelling with MODFLOW 6 (including unstructured meshes):
Aim of the courseIn this Tutorial you will learn the basics of iMOD Suite, this includes QGIS and the IMOD Plugin, iMOD Python and the iMOD 3D viewer. Therefore, we load and analyze a few file types. The files describe geohydrologic datasets for an area in the town of Abbeyfeale, Ireland. For this area we will develop a simple groundwater model using Python. Therefore, we will start a command prompt for Python. From that command prompt you will run 7 prepared Python scripts. Each script handles a single step in the MODFLOW 6 modelling process: the preprocessing of basic data, the creation of MODFLOW 6 input files, running of the MODFLOW 6 model and analyzing the results. The files created with each step will be analyzed in QGIS.
