Comparison of IWFM and MODFLOW-Farm Process

Below are two reports documenting the results of a collaborative effort between DWR and the USGS between 2006 and 2010 to compare IWFM (DWR) and MODFLOW-Farm Process (USGS) generic models. The first report "Integrated Water Flow Model and Modflow-Farm Process: A Comparison of Theory, Approaches, and Features of Two Integrated Hydrologic Models" compares the theoretical principles for modeling physical processes in both models and the second report "Comparison of Simulations of Land-use Specific Water Demand and Irrigation Water Supply by MF-FMP and IWFM" compares results of the models using a common hypothetical example. It should be noted that the example was chosen to facilitate comparison of the two models and do not necessarily reflect demonstration of the full capabilities for either one.
