Evaluation of Shallow Groundwater Quantity in Harbin by Numerical Modeling


Article Preview

In order to complete the geological survey of Harbin, it is necessary to understand the regime and law of groundwater in Harbin with the method of groundwater numerical modeling which requires the evaluation of groundwater resources quantity as a basic and critical step. Based on the analysis of hydrogeological conditions of the shallow aquifer in Harbin which includes the characteristics of aquifer system structure, boundary conditions, groundwater regime and recharge and discharge, a conceptual hydrogeological model has been built up with GMS (Groundwater Modeling System). With the numerical simulation model transferred by the conceptual model, the total amounts of renewable groundwater resources under different precipitation frequencies have been calculated. The result not only illustrates that the shallow aquifer in Harbin has certain potential in development and utilization but also provides some reference for managing a highly precise groundwater quantity evaluation by groundwater numerical modeling techniques.
