ABSTRACT:

This review of literature compiles modeling effort that were undertaken for the Cache Valley, Utah, USA in groundwater (head and concentration), surface water, water quality (temperature, sediments, and chemical contaminants), and climate. In other words, this work is a compilation of the studies that included a modeling framework to model any of the above mentioned systems.

Most of the literature pertaining to the aquifer characterization models in Cache Valley were either obtained from government reports or unpublished work. The review of the literature points to the lack of the use of computer models that are available in the field to model the aquifer. The current models characterizing the aquifer in Cache Valley indicates the need for revising both the conceptual and computer models. The primary reason being differences in the characterization by different workers. However, there has been a steady buildup of conceptual models characterizing the aquifer.
