Fort Collins 2011

I'm back from another well-attended aquifer testing short course held at the headquarters of In-Situ, Inc.on October 5 and 6, 2011 and the sixth consecutive year that we've traveled to Ft. Collins, CO to present Aquifer Testing for Improved Hydrogeologic Site Characterization Featuring AQTESOLV and the In-Situ LevelTROLL.

Analysis of recovery data combining Agarwal method and derivative analysis.
The course covered topics relating to designing, performing and analyzing both slug tests and pumping tests and included hands-on use of AQTESOLV as a teaching tool. As part of my lectures, I spent a good deal of time going over the finer points of diagnostic methods for pumping tests including derivative analysis, a technique widely practiced in the petroleum industry for well test analysis. I further introduced the class to the Agarwal method for analyzing recovery tests which also drew a lot of attention.

Thanks to all who attended the course and to In-Situ for hosting us! I look forward to doing it again next year.
