GMS

Groundwater Modeling System

The US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Groundwater Modeling System (GMS) is a three-dimensional groundwater modeling and visualization environment for groundwater flow and contaminant transport that can interface with and integrate several widely-used groundwater models, such as FEMWATER, MODFLOW, WASH123D, etc. It is capable of simulating and visualizing subsurface flow, contaminant fate and transport and the performance and evaluation of groundwater remediation measures.
