The Vadose Zone: Variable Saturation in Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology Presented by the Department of Geology, University of Pretoria Variably saturated flow conditions are increasingly relevant to geotechnical and hydrogeological assessments. This is most evident in the so-called vadose zone that extends from land surface to the phreatic surface, and which is characterised by variably saturated hydrological systems mostly at negative pore water pressures.

The comprehensive overview of model calibration and in-depth understanding of the intricacies of uncertainty by Professor John Doherty is great value for money. It is very scarce that the actual developer devotes his time to present a course and thus this course is highly recommended. PEST is the industry standard along with the US UCODE software for groundwater parameter estimation and uncertainty analysis. Whether using finite element (FEFLOW) or finite difference (MODFLOW), model calibration is essential using any one of these codes.

Considering that our current Level of COVID-19 Regulations are still in force until 15 February, and that the new strain of the coronavirus is especially virulent, we unfortunately have to postpone our Courses scheduled for 9 – 11 February (in Pretoria) and for 9 – 11 March (near Stellenbosch) to the second half of the year. We are doing our best to comply with the government’s decision to limit gatherings for extended periods of time, and we remain committed to safeguarding the health and safety of all our delegates.

Frequently, new geologists are placed on drilling projects with very little understanding of the drilling operation. In order to effectively contribute to managing the project, geologists require at least a basic level of understanding of drilling principles and the drilling operation as a whole.
