VERIFIES Theis assumptions without curve matching

DESCRIPTION [top]


This book, now in its fourth edition, presents the conventional solution methods using common language and carefully constructed illustrations. It was written and designed for those of us who think and learn visually. What separates Introduction to Aquifer Analysis from the rest of the field are the new and efficient methods that are included which can be used to supplement some of the graphical analyses and validate results. It is an excellent teaching tool and a reference: a teaching tool for students new to the hydrogeological sciences; and a reference for engineers who need quick and easy access to information. The mathematics are successfully explained through the use of illustrations. The computer program is included to help with the learning process and can be used to evaluate aquifer test data and confirm the newer methods. This is a powerful package that should be in the library of any ground-water scientist. ISBN - 1-887201-06-8. Publ. 1997 WRP.

REVIEWS [top]


Here's what professional ground-water scientists are saying about Dr. Kasenow's research:

"He possesses a wonderfully articulate yet pragmatic method of conveying his thoughts, intuitions and application of theory. His work stands the test of time." --- Walter J. Bolt, Senior Project Manager, PM Environmental, Inc.

"Dr. Kasenow has shown both his creativity and drive to build on, rather than simply follow techniques developed by others. His books present relatively complex concepts in easy to understand graphic form without oversimplification." --- Dana R. Unangst, Project Manager, Insight Environmental Services, Inc.

"It is refreshing to see someone looking at alternatives to complicated and sometimes subjective curve matching techniques." --- Scott R. Green, Senior Hydrogeologist, Conestoga-Rovers & Associates.

"As President of a consulting firm, I am always concerned with balancing costs and providing clients with complete and thorough data evaluations. Dr. Kasenow's practical application techniques have allowed my firm to complete thorough data evaluations at lower costs. Once one uses Dr. Kasenow's data evaluation programs, you are left with the feeling of 'why did I waste my time with other programs?" --- Mark. B. Sweatman, CPG, President, Insight Environmental Services, Inc.


AquiferTest for Windows [top] ~ Student version 2.54, by Thomas Röhrich and Waterloo Hydrogeologic Inc. This is a fully functional version that includes the three most commonly used pumping test analysis methods (Theis, Cooper-Jacob and Neuman) and allows a maximum of 25 data points. The student version of AT allows the user to create new files, save all files and print all data and results to any printer or plotter supported by Windows.
