Classroom Course Schedule

# Course Title Start Date Finish date Price Enroll Online
Aquifer Performance Test Analysis Aquifer Performance Test Analysis September 22, 2014 September 23, 2014 725 USD

Hydrogeologists strive to determine the most reliable values for hydraulic characteristics of aquifer and aquitard material. This course is designed to introduce you to the theory behind the analysis of pumping and slug tests in order to better support these interpretations while facilitating your familiarity with the AquiferTest Pro software.

This classroom-style course will be offered in Lima, Peru September 22-23, 2014

Introduction to Environmental Data Management using Hydro GeoAnalyst Introduction to Environmental Data Management using Hydro GeoAnalyst September 24, 2014 September 26, 2014 1275 USD

This 3-day course presents an introduction to environmental data management using Hydro GeoAnalyst.  Data management begins with the development of an integrated database that includes the many disparate sources of environmental (groundwater, soil, air, etc.) data that are common in environmental analyses.  Inherent rules in the Hydro GeoAnalyst database conform the data, ensuring a high level of data quality.  This course focuses on two components; the storage and retrieval of data for QA/QC analysis and reporting, and the visualization of the data on maps, borehole log plots, cross sections or in three dimensions.  Data stored in Hydro GeoAnalyst is often used in site characterization, regional hydrogeologic analysis, compliance reporting and the development of groundwater models.  This course will cover a variety of topics including database management, borehole log plotting and cross section analysis.

An Introduction to Groundwater Modeling An Introduction to Groundwater Modeling October 28, 2014 October 31, 2014 1895 USD

This 4-day groundwater modeling course was designed to introduce groundwater professionals to Visual MODFLOW software, and to provide guidance on how to apply modelling programs such as; MODFLOW, MODFLOW-USG, MODPATH, ZoneBudget and MT3D/RT3D, to groundwater flow and solute transport models. The lecture presentations are developed to describe the modeling process, and provide insights into property and boundary condition selection as well as an introduction to model calibration. The lab exercises are step-by-step descriptions of how to use Visual MODFLOW software to develop a wide variety of groundwater models. Each exercise represents a different application of MODFLOW, and provides different views of the tools within Visual MODFLOW to help with model development, calibration and prediction of results.
