The electroneutrality principle is a very useful principle and one of the foundations of water chemistry. This principle states that the sum of positive and negative charges within the water must balance to zero. This principle is also very useful when working with groundwater samples. Below are two good examples of how AquaChem water quality analysis software uses this principle to help you verify the quality and accuracy of your water quality sample results.

Schlumberger Water Services (SWS) will attend the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Regional Water Data Workshop 2014. The workshop will be held from September 9 to 12 in Kansas City, Missouri. It provides technical training and professional development for USGS Hydrographers. SWS plans to showcase its latest developments in groundwater monitoring technology including the Diver-NETZ wireless groundwater monitoring system and its suite of Diver groundwater dataloggers.

The new particle tracking program mod-PATH3DU, developed by S.S. Papadopulos & Associates, provides a vital component for interpretation and analysis of MODFLOW-USG groundwater models. This program will be integrated into Visual MODFLOW Flex in a future release. The following images are some of examples of pathline analysis using mod-PATH3DU and UnStructured Grid models (Voronoi and Quad-Based grids) generated by Visual MODFLOW Flex.

Last month, Schlumberger Water Services travelled to Buffalo, New York to participate in a full-day pumping test design and analysis workshop at the University at Buffalo. Co-organized by SWS and the University at Buffalo, the workshop brought together graduate students, groundwater professionals and government representatives for a combination of lectures and field activities using the University's well field. Participants learned through a live demonstration how to design and implement a field scale pumping test using "pumping test ready" Diver groundwater dataloggers. Participants were also given the opportunity to analyze and interpret collected pumping test data in the classroom using AquiferTest Pro pumping and slug test analysis software.
