About this document
This report summarises approaches to the simulation of the impacts of CSG extraction in regional scale groundwater flow models. It summarises the literature relating to regional scale groundwater modelling approaches and discusses two aspects of the modelling process in detail, specifically:
- strategies for parameter upscaling and spatially interpolating, and,
- numerical representations of fault and fracture systems in groundwater flow models.
