The computer code, Metropol is described. This code, based on the finite element method, simulates the three-dimensional flow of groundwater with varying density and the simultaneous transport of contaminants in low concentration. The basic equations for groundwater flow and transport are described, as well as the mathematical techniques used to solve these equations. Pre-processing facilities for mesh generation and post-processing facilities such as particle tracking are also discussed. This work was part of the Community Mirage project - second phase, research area `Calculation tools'.
