Lateral Analytic element model

Analytic element modelling is grid independent and by default assumes aquifers are of infinite extent. The geological Gloucester Basin boundaries were therefore explicitly implemented as no-flow boundaries (Section Alluvial MODFLOW models

The Gloucester subregion is a closed geological basin. The alluvial aquifer is a relatively thin skin on a much thicker geological sequence. The saturated thickness of the lateral boundaries is very small compared to the thickness of the aquifer, and thus there are zero-flow boundaries along all edges.
