ALL GROUND-WATER HYDROLOGY WORK IS MODELING
A Model is a representation of a system. Modeling begins when one formulates a concept of a hydrologic system, continues with application of, for example, Darcy's Law or the Theis equation to the problem, and may culminate in a complex numerical simulation.
models are wrong, but some are useful. - George
Throughout this course, most of the paths are designed so that you follow a path, reach the end, and click "BACK" the appropriate number of times to return to where you diverted from the main flow. Consequently, if you find yourself at the end of a page with no apparent "place to go next", then click "BACK" until you reach the diversion point. There are a few places that require circular paths and in these areas, links are included at the end of the page to get you to the correct place. Using "BACK" at these locations will carry you through whatever circles you have journeyed before returning you to the original diversion point.
