AquaChem Used to Analyze Groundwater Geochemistry for University of Ottawa Masters Project

2016-11-22T18:26:23+00:00 April 17th, 2015|Categories: AquaChem, Water Quality Analysis|

A student at the University of Ottawa recently used AquaChem water quality analysis software in the completion of a M.Sc. thesis project to better understand the groundwater regime and produce maps of expected groundwater quality for a city in Ontario, Canada. The project involved the sampling and analysis of groundwater from 127 private wells. Field parameters [...]

PART II: Using the Electroneutrality Principle to Verify the Accuracy of Water Quality Samples in AquaChem

As mentioned in my previous blog post, electroneutrality (E.N.) is a powerful tool to find errors in major ion analyses. Histograms are an efficient way of presenting and reviewing E.N. values. A histogram divides the active data into ranges and plots the number of points (i.e. samples) in each range. AquaChem enables you to easily create [...]

PART I: Using the Electroneutrality Principle to Verify the Accuracy of Water Quality Samples in AquaChem

The electroneutrality principle is a very useful principle and one of the foundations of water chemistry. This principle states that the sum of positive and negative charges within the water must balance to zero. This principle is also very useful when working with groundwater samples. Below are two good examples of how AquaChem water quality analysis [...]

4 Essential Best Practices for Effective Water Quality Data Management

2016-11-22T18:26:29+00:00 January 3rd, 2014|Categories: AquaChem, Environmental Data Management, Water Quality Analysis|

Managing environmental data can be a headache. After collecting data at different intervals, from different locations with multiple laboratory analyzed results, managing data in a meaningful way can prove to be a challenging and cumbersome task. Making logical and realistic interpretations and predictions from these data sets can be further complicated by a lack of confidence [...]

How to Create Water Level Time Series Plots in AquaChem

2016-11-22T18:26:37+00:00 August 13th, 2012|Categories: AquaChem, Water Quality Analysis|Tags: , |

Using AquaChem you can easily show the evolution of chemical or physical parameters over time for a given sampling point. The time series plot is a standard technique for interpreting hydrochemical and hydrogeological processes and in particular temporal trends in natural waters. The following steps show you how to create water level time series plots in [...]
