Dear friends,

Can anybody guide me about the situation? I have made a quasi-3D model consisting of three aquifer layers using PMWIN. In PMWIN role of confining layers can be simulated in terms of vertical leakance. Can this calibrated model can be used for contaminant transport. Hoping for urs best answers,

I am,
Rubina
• If you are using MT3D or GWT for the transport simulation, you can not use a quasi-3D model.

• Hi Rubina, Your 3D flow model can be used for contaminant transport simulation providing all your layers are either type 3 or 2 (have defined top and bottom)

Hi Rubina,

Your 3D flow model can be used for contaminant transport simulation
providing all your layers are either type 3 or 2 (have defined top and
bottom) and the thickness of individual layers is not too great. If the flow (MODFLOW) layers are thick than you may have to split them into a number of thinner layers with the same properties. This is because of the way the concentrations are calculated.

Good luck
