Worldwide AquiferTest Users
It’s here- AquiferTest 7.0! New features will allow you to do more, in less time, and with greater flexibility. Explore these powerful new features listed below.
A regional gradient (based on water surface elevation, flow direction and gradient or three known water elevations) can be added to calculated drawdown (based on a selected analytical solution) to obtain a regional contour map [PRO-Version Only]
The following field variables are available for the custom field in reports:
– the <FILENAME> variable prints the filename.
– the <FILEPATH> variable prints the full path and filename.
Version Number Rebranding
You might have noticed we are also branding AquiferTest with the new version type of 7.0. rather than continuing with “year” branded version numbers. We hope this will make it easier for you to track changes and updates. From now on, new versions will always increment the whole number and minor releases will increment the decimal.

Diagnostic plots for choosing the best analysis
AquiferTest provides a set of powerful diagnostic plots that help you easily identify model assumptions and select the most appropriate analytical solution for your pumping test data.
An extensive suite of analytical methods
AquiferTest delivers an extensive set of solutions suitable for all types of aquifers and test conditions. Analyse confined, unconfined, leaky, and fractured aquifers. Account for various well conditions including wellbore storage, horizontal wells, and single-well analyses.

Colour contouring and color shading
Gain a deeper understanding of your test data and take your reports to the next level with colourful contour maps showing drawdown data and well interference over aerial and satellite site maps.
Automatic analysis reports
Automatically transform raw analyses to professional-quality reports that include your company logo, name, project information, well data, analysis graphs and site maps. Reports templates can be customized exactly the way you want them, and saved as PDFs for easy sharing.
Barometric and baseline trend correction
AquiferTest Pro provides pre-processing tools that ensure your water levels are corrected for baseline trends (trend effects) and barometric pressure changes.
Automatic type curve fitting
Show type curve families on analysis graphs for enhanced visual curve matching of complex aquifer conditions arising from variable pumping rates, aquitard storage and boundary effects.
