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.

  • Groundwater
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.
