The primary purpose of this demonstration project was to determine the current strengths and weaknesses of the GMS Version 1.2 and its groundwater models through a field modeling application. Although an attempt was made to calibrate the flow and transport models to measured data, the objective of this project was not to create a highly refined model of the MADE-2 experiment. The MADE-2 tracer experiment was selected for the application because the test is well-documented and the hydrogeologic database of the experiment was available. Additionally, accurate numerical simulation of this experiment is generally considered to be a difficult task. For this reason, this experiment should provide ample opportunity to test many of the features of the GMSFEMWATER and GMSMODFLOW- MT3D software system.
