Ground Water Flow and Transport for the SICS and TIME Models
|This project aims to further the understanding of surface water and ground water interactions in the Everglades.
Surface water and ground water interactions play an important role in Everglades hydrology, particularly near the coast where the salinity of surface water can be affected by the underlying saline ground water. The focus of this project is on the development of a variable-density ground water flow and solute transport model to simulate flow and salinity interactions between surface water and groundwater along the southwest Gulf coast and Florida bay boundaries of Everglades National Park. Development of algorithms and simulation techniques and an increased understanding of surface water and ground water interactions can help better predict the hydrologic response of the Everglades to restoration alternatives.
