Training Workshop on Borehole Geophysics for Groundwater


Background:
The training workshop will be conducted by Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Kharagpur with technical support from the United States Geological Survey (USGS).

Objective:
The borehole geophysics training workshop is focused in providing participants with in-depth training on the use of digital borehole geophysical logging methods useful for groundwater-resources exploration, aquifer assessment and borehole integrity testing. Instruction on geophysical logging methods and tools commonly used in groundwater exploration to delineate geologic formations, estimate water quality, and optimize well completion and screen placement will be provided and demonstration. Instructor-led case studies and participant-collected data sets will be used to illustrate the uses and limitations of different borehole geophysical methods and gain hands-on experience in the use of logging equipment and the performance of data analysis. Classroom exercises will be conducted using computer-based well-log plotting and analysis software. The participants will also be taught to analyze and interpret the data collected during the field exercises. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants will have practical skills and the knowledge required to operate digital logging systems and tools, and analyze log data to solve a range of groundwater-resources exploration, aquifer assessment and borehole siting and testing problems.

Dates: 11-21 November, 2014
Venue: IIT- Kharagpur, West Bengal

Resource Persons:
� Dr. John W. Lane � Chief, Branch of Geophysics, USGS Office of Groundwater
� John Williams � National Borehole Geophysics Advisor, USGS Office of Groundwater
� James Alton Anderson � Senior logging engineer, USGS Office of Groundwater
� Prof. Abhijit Mukerjee, IIT- Kharagpur
� Prof. Probal Sengupta, IIT - Kharagpur

Target Group:
The training is designed to raise the skill of Engineers and Hydro-geologist/Geophysicist from Central and State Govt. Agencies engaged in hydro-geologic projects that involve aquifer assessment, well-siting, and drilling. In particular the training is intended for those who are engaged in the planning and implementation of borehole geophysical logging and data analysis programs.

Participation and Registration:
The nomination of the officers fitting the target profile may directly register in the website latest by 25th October 2014. Please be informed that due to logistic limitations, the workshop can accommodate only 30 participants. Henceforth, the participants are advised to wait for the confirmation notification from the organizers before they start making their travel plan. The confirmation email will be sent out latest by 31st October 2014.
Kindly note that a participant is allowed to participant in only ONE of the Training Workshops.
