Summary:The USGS Modular 3-D Finite Difference Ground-Water Flow Model by McDonald and Harbaugh (MODULAR) simulates groundwater flow in three dimensions by breaking the modeled region into several layers of "blocks" with a node located in the center of each block. The model contains features for handling pupmping and other stresses, drains, surface water sources, and boundary conditions in three dimensions. A case study is used to demonstrate the application of the technique to a relatively large and complex problem.—Modified book abstract.
