Dataset: HUN GW Model v01



The dataset was derived by the Bioregional Assessment Programme from multiple source datasets. The source datasets are identified in the Lineage field in this metadata statement. The processes undertaken to produce this derived dataset are described in the History field in this metadata statement.

The Hunter groundwater model. This was created using the script in the "HUN GW Model code v01" acting on the index.xml file contained in the top-level directory of this dataset. The index.xml file contains provenance information for the raw-data (HUN GW Model Mines raw data v01) and tells the preprocessing scripts where to find this raw data. As the groundwater model is successively built using the python scripts, provenance is successively added to the files generated (as headers, or similar data structures). The exception to this is the finite-element mesh (mesh3D/mesh3D.*) which is the main output of the process, and which eventually contains such an enormous amount of provenance that the code suffers from buffer overflows: therefore its provenance is dumped to mesh3D/provenance_dump periodically.

As the scripts gradually build the groundwater model, they modify index.xml: it acts as a journal file for model creation, allowing provenance backtracking when using any standard xml viewer.

The final MOOSE input files are found in the "simulate" directory, and an example of the final MOOSE output is the "HUN GW Model simulate ua999 pawsey v01" dataset.

Dataset History

Created using found in the "HUN GW Model code v01" dataset, acting on the index.xml file, and hence using the raw data found in the "HUN GW Model Mines raw data v01" dataset.
