imod.evaluate.
calculate_gxg
(head, below_surfacelevel=False)[source]¶ Function to calculate GxG groundwater characteristics from head time series.
GLG and GHG (average lowest and average highest groundwater level respectively) are calculated as the average of the three lowest (GLG) or highest (GHG) head values per hydrological year (april  april), for head values measured at a semimonthly frequency (14th and 28th of every month). GVG (average spring groundwater level) is calculated as the average of groundwater level on 28th of March, 14th and 28th of April. Supplied head values are resampled (nearest) to the 14/28 frequency. Hydrological years without all 24 14/28 dates present are discarded.
Requires bottleneck.
 Parameters
head (xr.DataArray of floats) – Head relative to sea level, in m, or m below surface level if below_surfacelevel is set to True. Must be of dimensions
("time", "y", "x")
.below_surfacelevel (boolean, optional) – False (default) if heads are relative to sea level. If True, heads are taken as m below surface level.
 Returns
gxg – Dataset containing glg: average lowest head, ghg: average highest head, and gvg: average spring head.
 Return type
xr.Dataset
Examples
Load the heads, and calculate groundwater characteristics after the year 2000:
>>> import imod >>> heads = imod.idf.open("head*.idf").sel(time=heads.time.dt.year >= 2000) >>> gxg = imod.evaluate.calculate_gxg(heads)
Transform to meters below surface level by substracting from surface level:
>>> surflevel = imod.idf.open("surfacelevel.idf") >>> gxg = surflevel  gxg
Or calculate from groundwater level relative to surface level directly:
>>> gwl = surflevel  heads >>> gxg = imod.evaluate.calculate_gxg(gwl, below_surfacelevel=True)

convert_pointwaterhead_freshwaterhead
(pointwaterhead, density, elevation, density_fresh=1000.0)[source]¶ Function to convert point water head (as outputted by seawat) into freshwater head, using Eq.3 from Guo, W., & Langevin, C. D. (2002):
\[h_{f}=\frac{\rho}{\rho_{f}}h\frac{\rho\rho_{f}}{\rho_{f}}Z\]An edge case arises when the head is below the cell centre, or entirely below the cell. Strictly applying Eq.3 would result in freshwater heads that are lower than the original point water head, which is physically impossible. This function then outputs the freshwaterhead for the uppermost underlying cell where the original point water head exceeds the cell centre.
Requires bottleneck.
 Parameters
pointwaterhead (float or xr.DataArray of floats) – the point water head as outputted by SEAWAT, in m.
density (float or xr.DataArray of floats) – the water density at the same locations as pointwaterhead.
elevation (float or xr.DataArray of floats) – elevation at the same locations as pointwaterhead, in m.
density_fresh (float, optional) – the density of freshwater (1000 kg/m3), or a different value if different units are used, or a different density reference is required.
 Returns
freshwaterhead
 Return type
float or xr.DataArray of floats

imod.evaluate.
facebudget
(budgetzone, front=None, lower=None, right=None, netflow=True)[source]¶ Computes net face flow into a control volume, as defined by
budgetzone
.Returns a three dimensional DataArray with in and outgoing flows for every cell that is located on the edge of the control volume, thereby calculating the flow through the control surface of the control volume.
Front, lower, and right arguments refer to iMOD face flow budgets, in cubic meters per day. In terms of flow direction these are defined as:
front
: positive withy
(negative with row index)lower
: positive withlayer
(positive with layer index)right
: negative withx
(negative with column index)
Only a single face flow has to be defined, for example, if only vertical fluxes (
lower
) are to be considered.Note that you generally should not define a budgetzone that is only one cell wide. In that case, flow will both enter and leave the cell, resulting in a net flow of zero (given there are no boundary conditions present).
The output of this function defines ingoing flow as positive, and outgoing flow as negative. The output is a 3D array with net flows for every control surface cell. You can select specific parts of the control surface, for example only the eastfacing side of the control volume. Please refer to the examples.
 Parameters
budgetzone (xr.DataAray of floats) – Array defining zones. Nonzones should be with a
np.nan
value. Dimensions must be exactly("layer", "y", "x")
.front (xr.DataArray of floats, optional) – Dimensions must be exactly
("layer", "y", "x")
or("time", "layer", "y", "x")
.lower (xr.DataArray of floats, optional) – Dimensions must be exactly
("layer", "y", "x")
or("time", "layer", "y", "x")
.right (xr.DataArray of floats, optional) – Dimensions must be exactly
("layer", "y", "x")
or("time", "layer", "y", "x")
.netflow (bool, optional) – Whether to split flows by direction (front, lower, right). True: sum all flows. False: return individual directions.
 Returns
facebudget_front, facebudget_lower, face_budget_right (xr.DataArray of floats) – Only returned if netflow is False.
facebudget_net (xr.DataArray of floats) – Only returned if netflow is True.
Examples
Load the face flows, and select the last time using index selection:
>>> import imod >>> lower = imod.idf.open("bdgflf*.idf").isel(time=1) >>> right = imod.idf.open("bdgfrf*.idf").isel(time=1) >>> front = imod.idf.open("bdgfff*.idf").isel(time=1)
Define the zone of interest, e.g. via rasterizing a shapefile:
>>> import geopandas as gpd >>> gdf = gpd.read_file("zone_of_interest.shp") >>> zone2D = imod.prepare.rasterize(gdf, like=lower.isel(layer=0))
Broadcast it to three dimensions:
>>> zone = xr.ones_like(flow) * zone2D
Compute net flow through the (control) surface of the budget zone:
>>> flow = imod.evaluate.facebudget( >>> budgetzone=zone, front=front, lower=lower, right=right >>> )
Or evaluate only horizontal fluxes:
>>> flow = imod.evaluate.facebudget( >>> budgetzone=zone, front=front, right=right >>> )
Extract the net flow, only on the right side of the zone, for example as defined by x > 10000:
>>> netflow_right = flow.where(flow["x"] > 10_000.0).sum()
Extract the net flow for only the first four layers:
>>> netflow_layers = netflow_right.sel(layer=slice(1, 4)).sum()
Extract the net flow to the right of an arbitrary diagonal in
x
andy
is simple using the equation for a straight line:>>> netflow_right_of_diagonal = flow.where( >>> flow["y"] < (line_slope * flow["x"] + line_intercept) >>> )
There are many ways to extract flows for a certain part of the zone of interest. The most flexible one with regards to the
x
andy
dimensions is by drawing a vector file, rasterizing it, and using it to select withxarray.where()
.To get the flows per direction, pass
netflow=False
.>>> flowfront, flowlower, flowright = imod.evaluate.facebudget( >>> budgetzone=zone, front=front, lower=lower, right=right, netflow=False >>> )

streamfunction_line
(frf, fff, start, end)[source]¶ Obtain the streamfunction for a line cross section through a threedimensional flow field. The streamfunction is obtained by first projecting the horizontal flow components onto the provided crosssection. The streamfunction can be contoured to visualize stream lines. Stream lines are an efficient way to visualize groundwater flow.
Note, however, that the streamfunction is only defined in 2D, nondiverging, steadystate flow without sources and sinks. These assumption are violated even in a 2D model, but even more so in the approach followed here. Flow perpendicular to the crosssection will not be visualized. It is up to the user to choose crosssections as perpendicular to the main flow direction as possible.
The 2D streamfunction and stream line visualization is based on work of Em. Prof. Olsthoorn.
 Parameters
frf (xarray.DataArray) – Three (or higher) dimensional dataarray of flow component along the rows (FLOW RIGHT FACE).
fff (xarray.DataArray) – Three (or higher) dimensional dataarray of flow component along the columns (FLOW FRONT FACE).
