      EMS-I is pleased to announce the following NEW training course:

      Advanced Groundwater Modeling and Visualization with GMS

      A Hands-On, Case Study Oriented, Course Featuring Advanced Topics in
      Site Characterization, Modeling Complex Stratigraphy, GIS Integration,
      Transient Simulations, and Model Calibration and Stochastic simulations
      us MODFLOW2000 and FEMWATER.

      DATE AND LOCATION

      July 30 - August 2, 2002, Park City, Utah

      COURSE DESCRIPTION

      This course will introduce users to many new or advanced modeling techniques
      for 3D site characterization, stochastic modeling, transient analysis,
      parameter estimation, and finite element modeling. A series of lectures and
      hands-on tutorials will be presented covering the following topics in a
      progressive fashion:

      COURSE OBJECTIVES

      - Use advanced site characterization techniques including the new Cross
      Section Editor and the new Horizons method for building solid models
      of complex stratigraphy.

      - Learn about the new options available in MODFLOW2000, including the new
      Layer Property Flow (LPF) and Hydrogeologic Unit Flow (HUF) packages.

      - Learn to import and manage data for transient simulations.

      - Use the advanced calibration tools in GMS, the MODFLOW 2000 PES process
      and the powerful new pilot point and regularization options available in
      PEST.

      - Learn how to use the new Stochastic Modeling module in GMS, including
      Monte
      Carlo, Latin Hypercube, and Indicator Simulation methods.

      - Use the new Risk Analysis Wizard to perform probabilistic threshold
      concentration
      and probababilistic capture zone analyses.

      - Use the new transition probability geostatistics model (T-PROGS) now
      available
      in GMS.

      - Learn how to generate a FEMWATER simulation, including a discussion of
      advanced
      3D finite element mesh generation techniques.

      - See presentations of case studies for several Army Corps of Engineers
      projects.

      COST

      The cost of the 4-day course is $1295 for pre-registration made before
      June 30th, and $1395 for registration thereafter.

      ***SOFTWARE DISCOUNT***

      A 25% discount (limited to $500) is available for any new GMS software
      purchase of the GMS for all course attendees. This discount is available if
      registration payment is submitted with the software order, or can be used up
      to 60 days following the course. This includes upgrades to GMS v4.0.

          Hello,

          I have been looking for copies of the out-of-print
          books

          "Theory of Ground Water Movement", by
          Polubarinova-Kochina

          "Flow of Homogeneous Fluids Through Porous Media", by
          Muskat.

          Used copies of these books are usually outrageously
          expensive. Does anyone have any pointers to where I
          might find one or both for reasonable prices?

          Thanks in advance for any info!
