Abstract: Many water-resource management and environmental quality problems require a better understanding of the complete hydrological process, which can be described only by using a variably saturated groundwater flow model. A new saturated/unsaturated three-dimensional rainfall-driven groundwater-pumping model has been developed to understand the response of a variety of hydrogeologic systems to both natural and anthropogenic impacts. This model was designed to simulate all of the important elements of the hydrological cycle other than the runoff and seepage processes as accurately as possible using physically based assumptions and equations. The uniqueness of the model is its hydrological and hydrogeological completeness such that the model runs using rainfall and climatologic data and calculates the three-dimensional pressure distribution over the entire hydrogeologic domain. The model also calculates the potential evapotranspiration for given climatological data. In the model, the greatest effort has been devoted to an improved conceptualization of the unsaturated zone, which is a crucial part of the hydrological system in a groundwater basin. This is because the unsaturated zone plays an important role in many hydrological processes such as recharge to groundwater, surface-groundwater interaction, solute transport, and evapotranspiration. Recent advances in modeling variably saturated flow are incorporated into the model.
