Applied Contaminant Transport Modeling Theory and Practice - Textbook
SSP&A has developed modeling and related software for over 20 years.
SSP&A develops and distributes software for groundwater modeling and related analyses. Many of these programs are provided free-of-charge, although a professional version of MT3D, referred to as MT3D99, is available. Select a software offering below to learn more.
ATRANS A 3D analytical solution for transport from a patch boundary condition with time varying concentration.
BIOSCREEN-AT is a screening-level model developed for and distributed by the EPA that simulates remediation through natural attenuation of dissolved hydrocarbons at petroleum fuel release sites.
Groundwater Desktop (GWD) is a fully 3D interface for visualizing groundwater models and their results. While GWD is flexible and might be used to visualize any model, development to-date has focused on MODFLOW, MODPATH, and MT3D, including the latest unstructured grid capabilities within MODFLOW-USG. GWD enables users to view the model numerical grid, input data such as properties and boundary conditions, and output data including heads, concentration, and pathlines. Models can be examined using cross-sectional, cut-away, and layer "exploded" views.
KT3D_H2O Version 3.0 - A Program for Kriging Water Level Data using Hydrologic Drift Terms.
MPNE1D A General Analytical Solution for One-Dimensional Solute Transport. MPNE1D is a FORTRAN90 code that implements the general analytical solution for one-dimensional solute transport.
MT3D99 - The Leading Code for Analyzing Contaminant Migration in Groundwater.
PATH3D V4.6 is a powerful and widely used particle-tracking program for MODFLOW.
PEST - the world’s most advanced software for model calibration, parameter estimation and predictive uncertainty analysis. The days of manual model calibration and data interpretation are over.
A Source Screening Module (SSM) has been developed in MS Excel to support preliminary evaluation of the threat posed by vadose zone waste sites on groundwater quality.
Staff of SSP&A provide training in the appropriate application of these programs in support of environmental and water resource studies, often in collaboration with other subject-area experts. Further information on planned training events can be found here.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has recently developed a new version of the groundwater flow model MODFLOW, called MODFLOW-USG, to support a wide variety of structured and unstructured grid types. However, there is not any particle tracking code adapted to it. We developed mod-PATH3DU to satisfy this need.
OneD - Excel implementation of analytical solutions for one-dimensional transport of solutes in groundwater.
