SRK UK will be presenting at the 14th GWMF Workshop

(12/05/2016) - The UK Groundwater Modellers’ Forum (GWMF) is running a workshop taking place in London on 16th May 2016. A number of talks will look at recent examples of repurposed models being used by the UK groundwater modelling community. Tom Jarman, Hydrogeology and Groundwater Modelling Consultant at SRK UK, will be presenting at the workshop. The title of his presentation is ‘Repurposing a regional groundwater model to assess mine inflows, dewatering optimisation and potential impacts on village abstractions’.

The presentation will be a case study on the development and adaptation of the Hinda groundwater flow model to simulate transient mining for inflows and dewatering optimisation. The model was subsequently repurposed to the assessment of impact on surrounding village receptors. In addition a separate modelling study was undertaken with this model, though the use of sub-models, to assess the potential for exploiting paleo-channel features and their importance with respect to borehole placement and deployable output.

The GWMF Workshop will take place in conjunction with the National Ground Water Research and Educational Foundation (NGWREF)’s Darcy lecture. The workshop is an excellent platform to share knowledge among groundwater modellers and there is expected to be over 80 participants in attendance.
