"This is a highly practical course for geologists and engineers who
practice in fractured rock terrain. I attended this course prior to
beginning a large investigation at a site situated in a complex
fractured rock setting. The course was an invaluable aid in planning
the design of the components of the intrusive investigation and
analysis of the field data. As a practicing geologist the courses I
attend must supply information that is practical, yet cutting edge,
and must have high utility in my day to day work. If you are planning
an investigation or are involved in a site with complex ground water
flow problems, this is the most up to date and functional course that
I have attended in years."
- S.C. Blauvelt, P.G., Vice President & Director of Regional
Operations, Penn E&R, Inc.
"This was an excellent course with highly qualified instructors, up
to date course material on fractured rock hydrogeology, and an
outstanding field trip inside Yucca Mountain at the Nevada Test Site.
I highly recommend (this course) to geologists, environmental
scientists, and engineers."
-Scott Shelton, City of Boston
"Excellent course to learn fracture flow coupled with new concepts of
contaminant and fluid flow in fractured media. Not only does the
course explain porosity & permeability of fractured settings, but it
presents useful modeling approaches for fractured scenarios too. The
instructors are terrific and highly knowledgeable in their field of
study. The field trip to Yucca Mountain was the highlight of the
course. I would recommend this course to anyone working with
groundwater, ranging from contaminant assessments to water supply."
-Christine Bucklin, California Department of Toxic Substances Control
"A fantastic mix of knowledgeable and enthusiastic instructors, up-to-
date and expansive course materials, and one spectacular field trip
made this by far the best course I have attended."
-Kathleen T. Soukup, Weston Solutions, Inc
"The course was excellent because of the combined classroom material
and core logging - I can apply the course material immediately."
-Jami Poor, Kerr-McGee Corporation
"The course instructors had the right mix of theoretical expertise,
practical experience, and especially enthusiasm. Also, the
interaction among the attendees was excellent and an unexpected
benefit of this course. It was well balanced and in-depth educational
experience that was well worth my time and expense. It validated
some of my own applications of fractured rock theory to LNAPLs, and
gave me a better understanding with new tools to move forward in this
area of hydrogeology."
