The inadequate appreciation of relations between causes of contamination and their occurrence applies to professional as well as lay individuals. Therefore, a great deal of effort is invested to develop a basic understanding of groundwater issues. The involved Cornell faculty and staff have turned to interactive mathematical models running on microcomputers as a key aid for helping both the professional and lay audiences to understand groundwater systems. This paper describes the kinds of software that have proven most useful.
