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

2016-11-22T18:26:23+00:00 January 29th, 2015|Categories: AquaChem, Water Quality Analysis|Tags: , |

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

2016-11-22T18:26:26+00:00 October 1st, 2014|Categories: AquaChem, Water Quality Analysis|Tags: , |

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 [...]

PEST in VMOD Flex – A Preview of What’s to Come

2016-11-22T18:26:35+00:00 October 16th, 2012|Categories: Groundwater Modeling, Visual MODFLOW Flex|Tags: , |

Historically, PEST is a topic that has intimidated beginner-novice modelers, due to the steep learning curve and lack of an intuitive GUI. PEST requires several steps to be completed in a specific sequence, in order to achieve a successful run and meaningful results. If you don’t mind editing text files, you might be able to get [...]

Many geologic and hydrogeologic site investigations require a detailed analysis of the available lithological data, and the drafting and interpretation of cross sections. Hydro GeoAnalyst's built-in Cross Section Editor can be used to perform these tasks. The Cross Section Editor provides a set of easy-to-use tools that allow you to easily interpret subsurface data including geological [...]

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 [...]

10 Model Design Tasks Made Easier with Visual MODFLOW Flex

2016-11-22T18:26:38+00:00 June 8th, 2012|Categories: Groundwater Modeling, Visual MODFLOW Flex|Tags: , |

The conceptual approach to groundwater modeling offers many advantages over traditional numerical modeling. For example, when designing your model you have complete freedom to make numerous changes and modifications without being constrained by grid cells. This results in significant savings in both time and effort. Here are 10 common groundwater model design tasks made easier with [...]
