Occasionally, GMDSI publishes a monograph, either as a document or perhaps a video, on a subject of modelling importance. Though technical in nature, GMDSI monographs are targeted at a broad audience. Their purpose is to cogently challenge ways in which decision-support groundwater modelling is traditionally undertaken using arguments that are based on logic and experience.

Groundwater modelling needs a context to make sense. This context is set by a decision that must be made, by those who must make that
What should decision-support groundwater modelling seek to accomplish? Should it try to build a digital replica of what happens underground? Obviously not, because this is
