Due to rapid urban development, shallow unconfined aquifers in a lot of coastal regions have becomed highly vulnerable to contamination from sea water intrusions.
The SEAWAT program is designed to simulate variable-density ground-water flow and solute transport in three dimensions. The underlying concept of SEAWAT is to combine an existing flow code with an existing solute-transport code to form a single program that solves the coupled flow and solute-transport equations. One benefit of the SEAWAT approach is that improved and updated versions of the flow and transport codes can be incorporated into the SEAWAT program to take advantage of recent improvements. Another benefit is that users familiar with the constant-density versions of the flow and transport codes can easily apply the SEAWAT program to variable-density ground-water problems.
Saltwater intrusions simulations tend to be complicated, especially in 3D but with GUI like Visual MODFLOW you can set up 3D model in 25 minutes. Of course, I was using SEAWAT from USGS in this course. Add new quality to your groundwater modeling skills.
If you are using other software as GUI for SEAWAT knowledge you gain on this course can be easily transferred!
VIP package is available for this course which includes 2 or 4 hours (110
USD per hour) 1-on-1 consultation on your specific questions or application via
online service Zoom or Skype.
Dragan Kaludjerovic received his BSc, MSc an PhD at Belgrade University and he is currently at specialization at The Johns Hopkins University - Environmental Engineering.
In his early career, 1998, Dr. Kaludjerovic focused his research on more complicated numerical models such as unsaturated zone modeling and transport modeling with MT3DMS. Feedback from his presentation at the MODFLOW 98 Conference influenced him to continue to work on mathematical models and their application to hydrogeology engineering which resulted in his MSc defense.
Later, in 2000, he was invited to work at Waterloo Hydrogeologic Inc, (WHI), a world leader at that time in groundwater model software development and consulting. During his time at WHI, he was introduced to innovative modeling techniques, including PEST for parameter estimation and reactive transport modeling with RT3D.
During the next several years, Dr. Kaludjerovic worked on numerous projects including the design of a large groundwater source with 1000 l/s in Macedonia.
In 2005, Dr. Kaludjerovic started work on his PhD thesis which was completed in 2008 and titled "Natural Attenuation of Contamination in Groundwater". The scope of this thesis focused on applications of the RT3D (Reactive Transport) model with multiple electron acceptors to a field case (aquifer contaminated with xylene).
After his PhD thesis, Dr Kaludjerovic continue to conduct research in the area of aerobic and anaerobic bioremediation with emphasis on emulsified oil projects and gas infusion technologies. During his carrier Dr Kaludjerovic published more then 25 papers which can be found below or on his Linkedin page.
