SIMULATION

Defines the simulation type.

Required Cards:

SIMULATION
Opens the SIMULATION block.
SIMULATION_TYPE <string>
Specifies the type of simulation. Options for <string> include: SUBSURFACE, SURFACE_SUBSURFACE, HYDROGEOPHYSICS.
PROCESS_MODELS <string>

Opens the PROCESS_MODELS block and lists the process models that are used in the simulation. Options for <string> include: SUBSURFACE_FLOW, SUBSURFACE_TRANSPORT, SURFACE_FLOW. If

MODE <string>
Specifies the flow mode if SUBSURFACE_FLOW is chosen under PROCESS_MODELS. Options for <string> are detailed in MODE.

Optional Cards:

CHECKPOINT
Opens a block for specifying checkpointing parameters. Details can be found in CHECKPOINT.
AUXILIARY <string>
To be documented.
