ParFlow is a hydrology model that simulates groundwater flow. It runs on many of the fastest supercomputers in the world and has produced hundreds of papers. Our two research projects support the development and use of ParFlow.ParFlow Performance Tracking Framework is a React web frontend to display ParFlow performance data using a Flask API and MongoDB database for storing and querying data. The website serves as an easy way for performance data to be displayed to those running ParFlow.ParFlowIO is a C++11 library with a Python3 interface for reading and writing ParFlow binary files. It allows hydrologists to read and manipulate the data produced by their ParFlow runs.
