3D Modeling for Groundwater and Water Quality Issues

Published on by in Business

Geologic log data can be processed and developed into 3D representations of the underlying strata. Water level data can then be incorporated into the 3D model to evaluate (a) water levels in various strata, (b) hydraulic connection between strata, and (c) the magnitude and direction of groundwater flow.

If contaminant fate and transport is an issue, aqueous concentration data and/or vapor readings (e.g., from a photoionization detector) can be input to the model and viewed in three dimensions, with the ability to rotate the model in 360 degrees and from plan view to cross-sectional views.
