A three-dimensional density-dependent groundwater flow and solute transport model for a coastal region in east-central Florida is presented. The model covers an area of approximately 2900 square kilometers and extends 760 meters deep. Owing to the relatively coarse grid discretization on account of the large size of the problem and the corresponding computational limitations, and the strong nonlinearities in the flow and transport equations, numerical parameters had to be applied with insight to obtain stable and converged results.
