BIOPLUME III is a two-dimensional, finite difference model for simulating the biodegradation of hydrocarbon in ground water. The model simulates both aerobic and anaerobic biodegradation processes in addition to advection, dispersion, sorption and ion exchange. BIOPLUME III is based on the U.S. Geologic Survey (USGS) Method of Characteristics Model dated July 1989 (Konikow and Bredehoeft, 1989; see Appendix A). This user's guide is a stand-alone document for the BIOPLUME III model and the Graphical User Interface Platform. Following this brief introduction, Section 2.0 provides instructions for installing the software and getting started. Section 3.0 is a step-by-step tutorial that demonstrates the main features of the platform. Section 4.0 is devoted to a detailed discussion on the theoretical development of the BIOPLUME III model and Section 5.0 is a thorough user's guide for the Graphical User Interface Platform.
