GMS Training - San Luis Potosi, Mexico

Dr Willis Weight of Carol College and Alan Lemon, from the GMS development team, recently taught Groundwater Flow and Transport using GMS to a class of 40 participants. The class was hosted at Instituto Potosino de Investigación Científica y Tecnológica (San Luis Potosi Institute of Scientific Research and Technology). Thank you to all of the participants in the class. We worked very hard for 5 days and the participants were very positive about their learning experience. We would also like to thank our friends at Ecoterra for organizing the class and hosting us.

MODFLOW-USG Training - Philadelphia

The GMS team recently completed a MODFLOW-USG training course in Philadelphia. Thank you to Dr. Laura Toran for hosting us at Temple University. Alan Lemon, from the GMS development team, and Sorab Panday, principal MODFLOW-USG author, taught the class. The 2 day class was filled with theory and hands on applications with MODFLOW-USG. Course participants were excited to see the new types of grids that can be used with MODFLOW-USG. GMS has many flexible options for creating unstructured grids that make using MODFLOW-USG as easy as using traditional MODFLOW.

New plot axes in GMS 10.0

The Plot Axes have been overhauled in GMS 10.0. The new axes automatically turn on and off as you rotate the view so that your view is never obscured. The options in the dialog are also much simpler.
