Groundwater flow modelling of the Aosta plain in northern Italy

The work describes the construction of a 3D finite difference groundwater flow model of the Aosta plain (northern Italy), both in steady state and in transient solution. The model takes into account the relation between groundwater and the Dora Baltea river, which crosses the valley from west to east. It has been designed to provide the Regional Agency for Environmental Protection of the Valle d’Aosta Region (ARPA VdA) with tools able to assess quantitative groundwater management. The studied aquifer system is composed by quaternary gravelly and sandy deposits 80 m thick (western side) and 50 m (eastern side), overlaying silty lacustrine deposits. Locally silty layers separate the unconfined aquifer from a semiconfined aquifer. The mathematical model, implemented with USGS finite-difference code Modflow 2005, consists in 27 layers, 655 columns and 243 rows, with 20x20m cell size.
