Description Split is a program for modeling single layer groundwater flow and advective transport in heterogeneous aquifers; parameter estimation is included. The program is based on the analytic element method which is based on the principle of superposition. The solution of a groundwater problem is obtained by adding the influences of individual analytic elements that correspond to aquifer features. The only inputs for an analytic-based model are physical aquifer features. The piezometric head and discharge are obtained analytically; computation of head and discharge does not require interpolation, numerical differentiation or similar procedures. The analytic element method is not a iscretization-based method. The method does not use any grids. Mass balance is satisfied in any model built. All the examples included in the distribution produce flow-nets. Includes an example where hydraulic conductivity of neighboring inhomogeneities differs by two orders of magnitude. Particle tracking and capture zones for well-head protection are included. Parameter estimation is availabe for recharge/leakage and hydraulic conductivity.
