Description GMS (Groundwater Modeling System) is a comprehensive groundwater modeling package developed under the direction of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. It provides complete support for the USGS MODFLOW 3D finite difference, MODPATH 3D particle tracking, MT3D 3D contaminant transport, the Department of Energy RT3D 3D bioremediation transport, and the Army Corps SEEP2D 2D finite element, and FEMWATER 3D finite element groundwater models. Support for other groundwater models is currently being added, including EPA NUFT and UTCHEM. Tools are provided for site characterization, model conceptualization, mesh and grid generation, geostatistics, and output post-processing. Several groundwater modeling data types are represented, including TINS, boreholes, 2D mesh, 2D grid, 2D scatter points, 3D mesh, 3D grid, 3D scatter points, and solids. 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. Tools are provided for site characterization, model conceptualization, mesh and grid generation, geostatistics, and output post-processing. Cross-sections and fence diagrams may be cut anywhere in the model. Hidden surface removal, and color and light source shading can be used to generate highly photo-realistic rendered images. Contours, color fringes, and 3D iso-surfaces can be used to display the variation of input data or computed results.
