AbstractMilitary training ranges in Canada often cover extensive areas overlying thick Quaternary stratigraphic sequences containing valuable water resources. Here we present the geomodeling methodologies and tools that have been used and/or developed over the last few years within the framework of environmental assessment studies of some of the largest training ranges across Canada. Essentially, models are built after a substantial data acquisition phase using a discrete modeling approach that provides the needed flexibility not only to meet the requirements of different groundwater flow modeling strategies but also those of aquifer vulnerability and risk to contamination mapping techniques. Tools that improve the interoperability between geologic and hydrogeologic models are presented along with some potential research avenues.
