Abstract: Many ground-water modeling studies can be performed on currently available microcomputers. The greatest problem associated with the proliferation of ground-water modeling software for a large number of microcomputers will be misapplication by inexperienced modelers. A review of Battelle, Pacific Northwest Laboratories' (Battelle-Northwest) research in developing and applying ground-water modeling indicates that current software is inadequate for the inexperienced modeler. Software developed for future ground-water modeling applications will bear increased responsibility for defining the relative importance of the physical processes involved as well as helping users properly evaluate results.
