Micro-computers offer an effective and efficient method for rapid and comprehensive analyses of groundwater flow. There are now numerous codes which have been developed specifically for micro-computers that assist the hydrologist in analyses of both flow rate and direction as well as allied aspects. The authors have used the IBM-PC/XT and compatible micro-computers for a variety of groundwater flow analyses. The paper describes the applications of codes to analyses of aquifer stress test data as well as to the prediction of water level drawdowns cause by pumping from a wellfield.
