Hydrologic Investigations at Naval Air Station Jacksonville (NASJAX)
USGS research began at NASJAX with the development and calibration of a one-layer regional groundwater flow model that simulates steady-state flow in the surficial aquifer (Davis and others, 1996). This model uses the USGS Modular Three-Dimensional Finite-Difference Groundwater Flow Model (MODFLOW) software as described in McDonald and Harbaugh (1988). The regional model has 240 rows and 290 columns with a uniform cell size of 100 by 100 ft (feet) and simulates steady-state flow for the entire Station and some surrounding areas. The model has been used subsequently to determine the direction and velocity of groundwater flow throughout NASJAX and to determine boundary conditions of telescoped models of smaller areas (Operable Units, for example) on the base.
