This year�s exciting and comprehensive short courses will help improve
your technical skills and get the most from your project budgets.
Improving Hydrogeologic Analysis of Fractured Bedrock Systems
May 21 and 22, 2003 at the University of Minnesota
This two-day course provides attendees with the practical knowledge to
significantly improve hydrogeologic analysis of fractured bedrock,
including carbonate, crystalline, and metamorphic rocks. The first day
consists of real-world applications for evaluating the role of bedrock
fractures in ground-water movement and contaminant transport. Special
attention is given to the inherent difficulties of ground water modeling in
fractured bedrock systems. The second day includes a comprehensive
comparison of different hydrogeologic field tests and analytical methods for
characterizing aquifer properties. In addition, the latest techniques for
designing ground water monitoring systems and remediation systems in
fractured systems is presented. Course participants are encouraged to bring
their own experience in fractured bedrock projects for discussion by the
entire group. Participants will use AQTESOLV for solving and practicing
data analyses of pumping and slug testing problem sets from Glenn Duffield,
the developer of AQTESOLV for Windows (http://www.aqtesolv.com)
learn and practice describing rock core for hydrogeologic projects and
estimating core recovery and Rock Quality Designation (RQD).
Advances in Pumping and Slug Testing for Improved Site Characterization: New
Concepts, Field Methods, and Data Analysis Techniques
May 19 and 20, 2003 at the University of Minnesota
This comprehensive two-day course provides attendees with the practical
knowledge to significantly improve the design, performance, and
analysis of pumping and slug tests. The first day consists of a morning
classroom session on slug test principles followed by a series of afternoon
field exercises including hands-on slug testing with "real time" data
visualization that allows participants to immediately recognize problematic
data and make adjustments - with personal guidance and insight from Jim
Butler, the author of "The Design, Performance, and Analysis of Slug Tests."
In addition, personnel from Geoprobe Systems will demonstrate the latest
direct-push methods for conducting pumping and slug testing. The second day
consists of a morning classroom session on pumping tests followed by an
afternoon computer session. The computer session consists of a hands-on
data analysis exercises using AQTESOLV software with personal guidance and
instruction from Glenn Duffield, developer of AQTESOLV for Windows
