Reliable hydraulic testing in fractured rock is more important today than ever. Large investments in site characterization, water resources evaluation and remediation system design demand sound science.
Emerging techniques and technologies in hydraulic testing have accelerated in recent years. New paradigms and analysis strategies allow us to get more information, more reliably, and more efficiently. Midwest GeoSciences Group & In-Situ, Inc. has designed a powerful five-module webinar series about hydraulic testing in fracture rock that empowers professionals with modernized insights.
Register now and learn ways to stretch your dollars by making efficient design decisions, selecting the appropriate analysis strategy and avoid re-work or needless uncertainty.

hydraulic tomography (Webinar Number 3 in Series)
Recognizing when porous media assumptions are not valid
Assumptions of homogeneous porous media aquifers are often applied to fractured rocks, even in sparsely fractured bedrock. While it is perfectly acceptable to adopt homogenous porous media assumptions in some situations; more often than not, these concepts and assumptions lead to erroneous results. Learn to recognize the threshold when homogeneous porous media assumptions end and heterogeneity in fractured rock systems need to be considered.
Validating your Conceptual Site Model
Learn how to select the appropriate hydraulic testing program based on your Conceptual Site Model. Test your CSM assumptions about heterogeneity, fracture density and other formation properties. Recognize which hydraulic tests can be used to characterize the complex spatial distribution of hydraulic parameters or the bulk hydraulic properties of large 3D areas.
This webinar series will answer some important questions:
What information do single- and cross-hole pumping tests yield? How can they be used to better understand site conditions?
What do the estimated parameters mean? Are they useful for groundwater modeling?
What analysis strategies are valid for different tests in different conditions?
Why should one adopt hydraulic tomography for a project?
What are the latest advances in transducer technologies?
How can I maximize the use of my borehole flow meters?
