SSP&A Training Course - Introductory and Advanced PEST – Our Bethesda, MD office is hosting back to back PEST courses September 28 - October 1. The introductory course will introduce inverse methods, providing theoretical background based on least-squares, and provide practical experience in their implementation in conjunction with a range of environmental models. The advanced course will focus on highly parameterized inversion in calibration of ground and surface water models, and in exploration of the uncertainty associated with the parameters and predictions associated with these models.
SSP&A Training Course - Theory and Application of MODFLOW-USG – Our Bethesda, MD office is hosting a three day training course September 22-25. The unstructured grid foundations of MODFLOW-USG provide for a wide range of options for local grid refinement in the vicinity of focused areas of interest such as surface water features and pumped wells. This focused course will cover groundwater modeling with MODFLOW-USG from start-to-finish.
