Applied Groundwater Flow and Solute Transport Modeling Applied Groundwater Flow and Solute Transport Modeling May 13, 2014 May 16, 2014 1260 USD

This 4-day* applied groundwater modeling course was designed to present the theory behind MODFLOW, MODPATH, ZoneBudget, MT3D/RT3D and SEAWAT, and to illustrate the practical development of groundwater flow and transport models using Visual MODFLOW Premium. This course introduces the modeling process including conceptual model development, numerical model implementation and model calibration but goes beyond the basics to examine specific groundwater modelling applications and address some of the more common groundwater modeming scenarios. It alternates between lectures and exercises to provide a combination of theory and hands on practice to support the concepts discussed in the course.

An Introduction to Environmental Data Management using Hydro GeoAnalyst An Introduction to Environmental Data Management using Hydro GeoAnalyst May 27, 2014 May 30, 2014 1495 USD

This 4-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 June 03, 2014 June 06, 2014 2690 USD

This 4-day MODFLOW 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, MODPATH, ZoneBudget and MT3D/RT3D, to groundwater flow and solute transport modeling. The lecture presentations are developed to describe the modeling process. 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.
