Tackling Complexity through Stochastic Modeling
Yet Another Hydrogeologic Study of the Gettysburg Basin
Tackling Hydrogeologic Complexity
- Intermediate-scale geologic features exert a large influence on the groundwater flow patterns.
- Suspected seasonal reversals of groundwater flow direction complicate the groundwater flow regime mapping.
- Stochastic modeling techniques were employed to frame the unquantified variations inherent within this unique hydrogeologic system.
- Source water protection zones were generated by aggregating thousands of flow simulations that meet observed criterion ranges.
