Borehole Geophysical Logging Workshop
Held During the 2019 Fall Week of Water
NWRA is Pleased to Introduce our Instructors:
Borehole geophysics is, and will continue to be, a highly effective tool for water resource/water supply applications and for environmental application. Last year’s two-day advanced workshop covered quantitative analysis of borehole geophysical data. That advanced workshop built upon previous introductory workshops; and, looked at more advanced geophysical logs or in more detail at logs introduced in the previous workshops and their interpretation.
This one-day workshop goes even further. Additional material and completely new exercises will be provided to expand and build upon your knowledge of the following:
· Cement bond logs (CBL) and CBL interpretation and well construction/rehabilitation evaluation; · Borehole (nuclear) magnetic resonance (BMR/NMR) logs and interpretation;
· Spinner flowmeter logs and interpretation;
· Identifying and correlating potentially transmissive units and incorporating into Conceptual Site
· Water quality versus water quantity; and,
· Porosity evaluation in carbonates.
This workshop expands upon an advanced framework and criteria for the use of borehole geophysics in the design, construction, and/or rehabilitation/abandonment of resource/water supply wells. Additionally, the workshop can help support work with aquifer storage and recovery projects, de-watering wells and deep injection wells. The information from these logs and advanced interpretation can provide fine-scale information on aquifer composition and properties that may be of great value for hydrogeologically complex projects.
A copy of the workshop slides will be provided on a thumb drive for future use and reference. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own geophysical logs to discuss them with the instructors and workshop attendees.
