SSP&A is best known for its work in modeling. Since the company was established in 1979, SSP&A has applied modeling codes and techniques to over 300 investigations of varying complexity. In the process, groundwater-flow and solute-transport modeling have become SSP&A's trademark.
Whereas running a model and producing results are performed by many environmental firms, SSP&A recognizes that modeling is a tool that must be applied correctly and only with a clear understanding of the hydrologic system in order to produce meaningful results.
SSP&A's modeling services include:
|Groundwater||Surface Water||Solute Transport|
Beyond the application of models, SSP&A provides leadership in modeling techniques and software development. SSP&A literally wrote the book on solute transport simulation (Applied Contaminant Transport Modeling – Theory & Practice). We developed and distribute the latest versions of the most widely used solute transport simulator in the world, MT3D. With this established expertise in model development, SSP&A can modify codes to fit the needs of a particular site or problem. We are also involved in the continuing development of PEST, a robust and comprehensive parameter estimation software program. Moreover, to promote the understanding and correct application of numerical modeling, SSP&A periodically provides training courses in numerical modeling to experienced environmental professionals.
