Contaminant flow and transport models require large amounts of high-quality spatial and temporal data in order to ensure reliability and validity of modeling results. ARC researchers have conducted more than a hundred simulations in order to calibrate models of the East Fork Poplar Creek (EFPC) and White Oak Creek (WOC) watersheds at ORR to derive model uncertainties and to provide analysis of remediation scenarios. This has resulted in hundreds of gigabytes of simulation data, creating the need for an advanced spatial data structure to address the management, processing, and analysis of spatial and temporal numerical modeling data derived from multiple sources, and to produce hydrogeological maps for visualization. The aim of this task therefore was to develop a geodatabase to support all research activities of the project, making the data more accessible to project team members for editing and data management purposes as well as for external requests.
