Monday evening, optional Computer Modelling Workshop
- Practical Model Applications for Risk Assessment and
Site Remediation will be held, to demonstrate the application
of environmental decision support software, and groundwater
and risk assessment modelling tools and the input parameters
required to build and calibrate groundwater flow models (DHI
Canada, Kitchener, Canada).
will be introduced to various graphical tools for evaluating well capture zones,
determining preferred flow and contaminant migration pathways, and optimizing
groundwater remediation systems. The workshops will use examples from existing
sites in Canada and the U.S. to evaluate risk assessment, natural attenuation,
endpoint analysis, three-dimensional groundwater flow, preferred migration and
exposure pathways, and the effectiveness of groundwater treatment systems.
Tuesday evening, EarthSoft, Inc. will discuss the Data Management Multiplier
for Environmental Consultants on how EQuIS Data Gathering Engine (EDGE) provides
higher quality data for better decision support and data analysis, and increasing
productivity and efficiency.
