Effortless Data Management & QA/QC
Easily import data from various file types (.txt, .csv, .xls, .xlsx, .mdb, and .accdb) and file formats (samples as rows, samples as columns, one analyzed value for each row)
Export stations, analysis data and geochemical plots to multiple formats, including text files, spreadsheets, images, and print-ready Office documents.
Create simple to complex data queries and easily extract vital information about your water quality data.
Interactive GeoChemical and Statistical Plots
AquaChem is capable of generating the following plots:
Geochemical plots: Piper, Stiff, Durov, Schoeller, Wilcox, Giggenbach, Meteoric Water Line, Ludwig-Langelier, Ternary;
Statistical Plots: Box and Whisker, Histogram, Probability, Quantile, Detection Summary; and
General Plots: Scatter, Pie, Stacked Bars, Radial, Time Series
AquaChem allows you to create multiple plots for the same dataset and view these plots simultaneously side-by-side. All plots are interactive which means when you click on a data point, its corresponding sample is highlighted in the sample list. This is useful for identifying outliers.
Water Quality Data Analysis
AquaChem comes with a comprehensive calculators and converters that allow you to perform quick, on-the-fly analyses on your water quality data. AquaChem is capable of the following calculations and conversions:
Unit Conversion: AquaChem manages measurement and concentration units for you – switch between mass-, molar-, and equivalent-based concentrations on the fly.
Ionic Functions: Water Type, Electroneutrality/Ion Balance, Sum of Anions, Sum of Cations, TDS, Hardness, Alkalinity
General: Date functions, Exceedance counts, Total Organic Carbon, Total Organic Halogens
Corrosion and Scaling Indices: Langelier Saturation, Ryznar Stability, Puckorius Scaling, and Larson-Skold
Agricultural/Irrigation Metrics: Sodium Absorption Ratio, Magnesium Hazard, Residual Sodium Carbonate
Enthalpy: Enthalpy of water (liquid or vapor) based on temperature or dissolved silica
Isotopes: Estimates of infiltration elevation and temperature based on Oxygen-18 and Deuterium isotopic fractionation
In just a few clicks, AquaChem delivers ready-made reports that contain key information about your water quality data. Report layouts can be fully customized using the Report Designer to accommodate project-specific needs. The following automatic reports are supported:
Sample Report: Generates a report for selected parameters that includes comparisons to water quality standards and summary statistics for selected samples
Station List Report: Generates a table of selected sampling stations
Sample List Report: Generates a table of selected samples
Sample Result Report: Generates table of selected results for the active sample
AquaChem includes a console that allows you to run scripts in the R scripting language and leverage the thousands of available libraries that facilitate data analyses, visualization, categorization and much more.
