Model Code Name:
ZOODRM  

Description:
ZOODRM is a distributed modelling code for calculating spatial and temporal variations in groundwater recharge. The model is fully compatible with the groundwater flow model ZOOMQ3D but can be used to produce a time series of recharge for other groundwater modelling codes. The model incorporates a standard Penman-Grindley type soil moisture balance method but also includes procedures for recharge estimation in arid countries, irrigated regions and urban areas.The FAO soil moisture balance method, and a simplified version of this algorithm, are included in the model. The latest version of the code also includes overland flow routing and storage, interaction with lakes and reservoirs, rainfall interception, and a groundwater flow model.
