This report documents the results of a 1992 U.S. Army-sponsored workshop on groundwater modeling uses and needs in support of contaminated groundwater resources at Army installations. The objectives of the workshop were to determine a the extent and specific nature of groundwater flow and contaminant transport models in Army site remediation b requirements for enhanced transfer of groundwater modeling technology within the Army and c needed research and development in groundwater modeling systems. Ninety individuals attended the workshop, representing the Army Environmental Center, various Corps of Engineers offices and laboratories, universities, consultants, and other Federal government agencies. Workshop participants indicated considerable near-past use of groundwater modeling, with a planned definitive increase in modeling use over the next 5 years. Modeling was considered one of the best tools for synthesis and analysis of the large amounts of biological, geochemical, and hydrogeologic data required for contaminated site remediation. However, Army user expertise in groundwater modeling was deemed to be lagging behind the state of science in general, with a few specific pockets of expertise presented. Thus, training, guidance, and in-Army technical support for groundwater modeling technology were reported as high-priority user requirements.
