QWMN Capability, Collaboration and Capacity Program
The different experiences of modellers and end users can lead to misunderstanding and/or different expectations of desired outcomes in groundwater modelling. In this project, Randall Cox, Groundwater Strategy Consultant conducted 21 interviews with senior modellers and end users to better understand and document the different perspectives and map them to a shared general framework. The intent of the resulting discussion paper is to increase the use of groundwater models in informing policy, program and regulatory domains, by highlighting modeller and end user interactions. The paper can also be used to stimulate discussion in other modelling contexts.
