Development of subsurface conceptual models for use in groundwater flow and transport modeling requires that existing data in the form of boring logs, cone penetrometer (CPT) logs, geophysical logs, and hydraulic measurements and tests be combined in an unbiased manner. Computational tools including interpretation of log data, spatial interpolation of hydrofacies, and inverse modeling are valuable for developing, culling, and calibrating multiple conceptual models of groundwater flow and transport.
