Understanding the past, present, and future movement of water and contaminants in the hydrologic cycle is essential to making wise environmental decisions.
Computer modeling is one of the most advanced methods available to gain this understanding, and its applications are highly diverse. Computer modeling is a vital component of our suite of professional services. DBS&A’s computer modeling capabilities cover a full spectrum, ranging from the application of simple analytical solutions to state-of-the-art and highly complex numerical computer codes. Our projects range from detailed simulation of the subsurface flow and transport within a small area, to simulation of groundwater recharge and flow through geologically complex aquifer systems over an area of hundreds of square miles.
In support of our simulation efforts, DBS&A offers advanced database services and geographic information system (GIS) technology for analysis of site data. The strength of our modeling group lies in the combination of extensive practical experience and strong academic backgrounds. Our modeling professionals have published their findings in peer-reviewed journals and have been selected by the Environmental Protection Agency to develop computer codes and guidance for national dissemination. DBS&A consistently meets the challenge to develop new and innovative simulation approaches to address the needs of our clients.
