Title: The River Lark project Model Manual
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: EA additional title info: April 1991
This manual is for use in simulating groundwater flew behaviour in the River lark Chalk aquifer in Suffolk. The extent of the aquifer and the finite difference mesh representing it in the model. The model has been developed for the National Rivers Authority by the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Birmingham. The model is suitable for use in management studies of the aquifer. This manual aims to provide the reader with all of the information necessary for using the model to simulate field conditions. It is expected that the reader is familiar with F0RTRAN77 and also with finite difference groundwater models as described in Rushton and Redshaw (1979). However, brief discussions of the assumptions and the pertinent theory used in developing the model are included where necessary.
