Borehole geophysics is, and will continue to be, a highly effective tool for water resource/water supply applications and is frequently applied in environmental investigations where, for example, sites must be evaluated to determine the distribution of contaminants. This portion of the workshop will provide the basic applications of borehole geophysics for designing and completing water production wells, assessing environmental concerns, conducting basin and hydrostratigraphic analysis, and rehabilitating or abandoning water production wells. This portion of the workshop will provide basic principles of log quality control and the main work products they should receive from a logging program and contractor (logging company).
In addition, this portion of the workshop will demonstrate some of these important applications of borehole geophysics which include identifying water producing zones in well boreholes; evaluating the thickness the thickness, distribution and transmissive quality of granular, fractured and karst aquifers; identifying fractures; evaluating relative water yield and water quality; planning well systems; and planning and evaluating well seals, workovers/rehabilitation, and abandonment.
