Learn to solve practical groundwater problems using the preferred software of hydrogeologists and engineers world-wide, including the UK Environment Agency, groundwater research organisations and leading consultancies.
The course is based on the application of Groundwater Vistas, the internationally recognised standard in 3D modelling, incorporating MODFLOW, MODPATH, MT3DMS and RT3D, plus 2D models such as WinFlow and WinTran.
Featured Topics:- Practical Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport Modelling Course
|Developing conceptual models.|

|Constructing 3D flow and transport models.|
|Understanding a systematic methodology for model calibration.|
|Maximising efficiency by utilising GIS to build model datasets.|

A comprehensive programme for groundwater modellers equips delegates with the practical skills required to develop groundwater models for problem solving and decision support. The Practical Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport Modelling course promotes awareness of the role and limitations of modelling in the solution of real-world groundwater problems.
The Practical Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport Modelling course is presented by leading experts involved in UK, US and European groundwater consulting and research who will highlight the development of critical faculties as well as ‘how-to’ software application skills. Time is split evenly between lectures and related hands-on use of the software, with application to case studies and group exercises a key feature.
“The hands-on sessions were very beneficial”
