Borehole Geophysical Logging Workshop

Held During the 2019 Fall Week of Water

 
 

NWRA is Pleased to Introduce our Instructors:

Bruce Manchon, PG, Janeil Environmental Solutions
John Sciacca, PG, Wood E&IS

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
Models (CSMs);
·         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.
