Separating Signal from Noise in Aquifer Test Data:
AQUIFER TESTING ONLINE COURSE 2021, MODULE 5


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 5:

Registrants can prepare for Module 5 by taking the pre-module assessment and reviewing the slides. Pre-session questions and requests for special topics are welcome too.


The primary purpose of an aquifer test is to extract information about the aquifer from the analysis of drawdown data collected at the test and observation wells. In an ideal situation, pumping at the test well is the only mechanism affecting the measured water levels. In many applications, however, there may be a number of other mechanisms in the mix, the impacts of which must often be removed to avoid misinterpretations and to get the most out of the test data.

This course module presents strategies for identifying the impact of these additional mechanisms and for removing or managing them. Both field and analysis strategies will be presented to help attendees deal with the impacts of natural (e.g., barometric-pressure changes) and anthropogenic (e.g., nearby pumping) mechanisms, as well as those of the instrumentation used to measure and record water-level changes.


Register now for this unique online-offline course
that presents key insights about aquifer pumping tests
that are found no where else online.



Whether you want to apply aquifer pumping tests to hydrogeologic characterization, water supply development or remediation design, this module will provide you with information that is not available elsewhere on the web.

CONGRATULATIONS TO JIM BUTLER!

Jim Butler, senior scientist and geohydrologist at the Kansas Geological Survey, is the 2020 recipient of the National Ground Water Association's M. King Hubbert Award.

The association's highest scientific honor, the award is given annually for major scientific or engineering contributions that advance the understanding of groundwater through research, writing, teaching, and practical applications.



Instructor Bio

Jim Butler, Ph.D.

Jim Butler is the author of "The Design, Performance, and Analysis of Slug Tests" (Second Edition). He currently is a Senior Scientist in the Geohydrology Section of the Kansas Geological Survey at the University of Kansas, where he has worked for over 30 years.

His research interests include aquifer testing, assessment of aquifers that support irrigated agriculture, high-resolution subsurface characterization, well responses to natural and anthropogenic stimuli, and the role of phreatophytes in stream-aquifer systems.

Jim holds a B.S. in Geology from the College of William and Mary, and a M.S. and Ph.D. in Applied Hydrogeology from Stanford University. Jim was the 2007 Darcy Distinguished Lecturer of the National Ground Water Association (NGWA), the 2009 Pioneers in Groundwater Award honoree by the American Society of Civil Engineers - Environmental and Water Resources Institute, and, most recently, the 2020 recipient of NGWA's M. King Hubbert Award.

Jim helps advance the environmental and engineering industry through teaching professionals about both slug testing and pumping tests. Jim has taught more than 40 courses with Midwest GeoSciences Group over the last 20+ years and we are pleased to have him again teach a purposeful and applied webinar.
