All Good Things Must Come to an End...

Our three-day aquifer-testing workshop in San Diego, CA concluded on Thursday afternoon. A quick review of the course feedback forms showed that all who attended were very pleased with the course and the instructors: Jim Butler, Glenn Duffield and Shlomo Neuman (right).

Here's what some of the participants had to say about what portion of the course was most valuable to them:
  • "Dr. Neuman's new solution [for pumping tests in unconfined aquifers]"
  • "Jim Butler's presentation on slug testing was excellent"
  • "Glenn Duffield's discussion concerning pump tests"
  • "The exercises were most valuable"
  • "Ability to bring my own data set for analysis"
  • "Diagnostic approach to pump test interpretation especially derivative use (and limitations)"
  • "Pretty much all of it"
On behalf of the other course leaders, I would like to say how much of a pleasure it was to meet and interact with all of you who came to the University of San Diego to attend our course. Like previous courses, the lectures often stimulated some very lively discussions between the presenters and the audience. We also had an opportunity to sit down and work with some of you on your current projects. We hope that you enjoyed these experiences as much as we did. Let me conclude by thanking each and every one of you for contributing to the success of the course.
