Grid Project Title:  Romanian 3D Structured Grid Version 1

Purpose of Project:

To create a three-dimensional Structured grid that incorporates stratigraphy from
a hydrostratigraphic model and encompases a 1 Km squared area around the potential
low level site.  The grid will be used as part of a modeling study to calculate flow and
reactive transport, using FEHM, to help evaluate the suitability of storing low level
nuclear waste at the site.

Summary of Project:

A three-dimensional grid was created with a domain that captures the location of the
proposed repository.  The grid incorporates stratigraphy from a 3D Hydrostratigraphic
model for material designations. The grid contains no negative coefficients and is
computable by FEHM.
