Numerical groundwater flow and transport modelling of the western Lake Taupō catchment
Report: TR 2012/42
Author: M Toews, M Gusyev (Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences Ltd)
The goal of this study was to develop a steady-state groundwater flow and transient contaminant transport model to aid with nitrate management in the western Lake Taupō catchment.
This study is a continuation of the 2011 study by Gusyev et al. It provides a detailed description of the constructed model for the western Lake Taupō catchment.
