Abstract

MODFLOW-CDSS is a three-dimensional, finite-difference groundwater-flow model based on MODFLOW-2005, with two modifications. The first modification is the introduction of a Partition Stress Boundaries capability, which enables the user to partition a selected subset of MODFLOW's stress-boundary packages, with each partition defined by a separate input file. Volumetric water-budget components of each partition are tracked and listed separately in the volumetric water-budget tables. The second modification enables the user to specify that execution of a simulation should continue despite failure of the solver to satisfy convergence criteria. This modification is particularly intended to be used in conjunction with automated model-analysis software; its use is not recommended for other purposes.
