Internet "lists" or "mailing groups" are topical electronic forums where list subscribers may post announcements, participate in discussions and pose and answer questions. These forums cover a vast array of topics. This is a listing of electronic discussion lists that are primarily concerned with topics related to water resources. For the sake of brevity and focus, the listing does not include the many other environmentally oriented lists that may periodically address water resource issues.

Brief instructions for subscribing to lists are given at the end of this document. For an overview of mailing lists and related tools, see Discussion Groups on the LISWiki.

If you know of any additions, deletions, or corrections that should be made to this listing, please send the information to wqic@ars.usda.gov.

  43. SEAWAT Users Group: "The SEAWAT program was developed to simulate three-dimensional, variable- density, transient ground-water flow in porous media. The source code for SEAWAT was developed by combining MODFLOW and MT3DMS into a single program that solves the coupled flow and solute-transport equations. The SEAWAT code follows a modular structure, and thus, new capabilities can be added with only minor modifications to the main program. SEAWAT reads and writes standard MODFLOW and MT3DMS data sets, although some extra input may be required for some SEAWAT simulations. This means that many of the existing pre- and post-processors can be used to create input data sets and analyze simulation results. Users familiar with MODFLOW and MT3DMS should have little difficulty applying SEAWAT to problems of variable-density ground-water flow. SEAWAT-2000 is the latest release of the SEAWAT computer program for simulation of three-dimensional, variable-density, transient ground-water flow in porous media. SEAWAT-2000 was designed by combining a modified version of MODFLOW-2000 and MT3DMS into a single computer program.

    This group aims to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and experiences regarding use and application of SEAWAT software." Subscribe and view archives at https://in.groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/seawat/info.
