Model Code Name:
AquiMod  

Description:
AquiMod is a simple, lumped-catchment groundwater model. It simulates groundwater level time-series at a point by linking simple algorithms of soil drainage, unsaturated zone flow and groundwater flow. It takes time-series of rainfall and potential evapotranspiration as input, and produces a time-series of groundwater level. Hydrographs of flows through the outlets of the groundwater store are also generated, which can potentially be related to river flow measurements  

Purpose:
Lumped parameter groundwater model
