Interpreting Pumping Tests in Complex Settings: Multiaquifer Systems:

Discover and learn the most up-to-date information
about aquifer pumping test techniques from some of the most
recognized authorities in ground water.

Pre-Course Tutorial and Study Materials:

Registrants dive into the course experience with study materials and a self-assessment. The personalized experience allows each registrant to learn (1) at their own experience level, (2) at their own pace, and (3) and in a private setting except when they have questions or request extra tutorials.

Prelude to Module 2:

Registrants can prepare for Module 2 by taking the tutorial before the live event and preparing questions for the instructor Chris Neville. Module 2 covers the fundamental analysis and interpretation for multi-aquifer systems. The instructor will be available for questions throughout the live module.

Course Module 2:

Whether by design or by accident, almost all pumping tests involve multiple strata. In the case of unconsolidated materials, no aquitards are completely impermeable and the leakage across them may have important influences on the response to pumping. There is a rich literature of models for interpreting pumping tests with leaky aquitards. The first part of this course module focuses on a systematic review of these models. The discussion moves into addressing the important issue of the time lag of monitors in aquitards.

We will also address the common scenarios where an aquifer consists of multiple permeable layers with no intervening aquitards. In the case of fractured rocks, it is rare that a pumping well is open across a single laterally extensive flow zone. In many cases, the well acts as a conduit to connect otherwise isolated flow zones. The course module will conclude with a review of the hydraulics of what are effectively multiaquifer wells.
