3-Day Course Offered with Midwest Geosciences Group

Early Bird  Registration February – March 31: $989
Registration after March 31:  $1189


Location: West Chester University Graduate Center 1160 McDermott Dr.


Dates: May 7-9, 2019


Conducting aquifer tests in complex hydrogeologic settings such as heterogeneous or fractured media often leads to suspect data or unanswered questions after the field work is complete. Even when you are confident of the geologic conditions, you may have difficulty designing effective aquifer tests, running field equipment, or selecting the best available model to analyze the test data. Where can you turn to improve your approach and skills for hydrogeologic site characterization?

This course is designed as a 3-day advanced-level training workshop on aquifer testing design, field methods, and data analysis techniques featuring AQTESOLV and the In-Situ Level TROLL. This course will provide you with the knowledge to master aquifer testing from beginning to end–using world-class field equipment and aquifer test analysis software.


Who should attend:
This course is designed for groundwater scientists and engineers, project managers, compliance program managers and remedial design managers.


What to expect:
This course begins with a brief overview of hydrogeologic principles of pumping and slug testing then continues at an advanced level throughout the course to cover the range of conditions typically encountered during field investigations.

Data analysis exercises include both simple and advanced pumping and slug test analyses to match the range of conditions typically encountered during field investigations.


Continuing Education Information:
2.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs)

(24.0 Professional Development Hours)
Course Completion Certificate from West Chester University is included in the course registration.


What you get:

  • Black and White Course Notebook
  • Field Guide for Slug Testing and Data Analysis ©
  • Continental breakfast, morning coffee break, lunch, and an afternoon break
  • Evening reception hosted by In-Situ following the course segments on Day One. Details about the location of the reception are given at the course.
  • Discount voucher good toward the purchase or rental of In-Situ products.


What to Bring:

  • Bring your laptop computer, a calculator and any field forms that you normally use for aquifer testing.
  • Course attendees bringing personal laptops will download and install the AQTESOLV demo before arriving at the course.
  • Optional full-color notebook available for purchase.

Shlomo P. Neuman is Regents Professor of Hydrology and Water Resources at the University of Arizona in Tucson. Dr. Neuman’s research has spanned the development and application of hydraulic and pneumatic field tests for the characterization of aquifer, aquitards and fractured rock hydrologic properties; geostatistical methods for multiscale spatial analyses of hydrologic data; development and application of stochastic methods to describe mathematically fluid flow and solute transport when soil and rock properties vary randomly in space, and with scale; development of computational algorithms and computer programs to predict subsurface flow, and solute concentrations, under uncertainty, and to assess the associated prediction errors; estimation of flow and transport model parameters under uncertainty; and use of such computational models to help assess subsurface contamination, identify contaminant sources, design groundwater monitoring networks, and aid the design of remedial operations.
