KRAEMER, S. R., M. BAKKER, AND J. R. CRAIG. AN OPEN-SOURCE COMMUNITY WEB SITE TO SUPPORT GROUND-WATER MODEL TESTING. Presented at 2007 AGU Fall Meeting, San Francisco, CA, December 10 - 14, 2007.

Impact/Purpose:

The objective of this project is to develop computer tools to delineate the zone contributing recharge to public water supply wells, and thus, support State, Tribes, and communities toward best management practices as they revisit current delineations, and design wellhead protection areas for new wells.

Description:

A community wiki wiki web site has been created as a resource to support ground-water model development and testing. The Groundwater Gourmet wiki is a repository for user supplied analytical and numerical recipes, how-to's, and examples. Members are encouraged to submit analytical solutions, including source code and documentation. A diversity of code snippets are sought in a variety of languages, including Fortran, C, C++, Matlab, Python. In the spirit of a wiki, all contributions may be edited and altered by other users, and open source licensing is promoted. Community accepted contributions are graduated into the library of analytic solutions and organized into either a Strack (Groundwater Mechanics, 1989) or Bruggeman (Analytical Solutions to Geohydrological Problems, 1999) classification. The examples section of the wiki are meant to include laboratory experiments (e.g., Hele Shaw), classical benchmark problems (e.g., Henry Problem), and controlled field experiments (e.g., Borden landfill and Cape Cod tracer tests).
