*AquiferTest for Windows (Theis Curve and Cooper-Jacob Solutions) Student ver. 2.54 - by Thomas Röhrich & Waterloo Hydrogeologic Inc., Waterloo, Canada
Theis Made Easy provides theory and application for new and improved methods that can be used to solve for transmissivity and the storage coefficient using pump test data and the Theis equation - without the Theis curve! Methods are provided that use pump test, recovery, and specific capacity data. Promising new methods that solve for the storage coefficient using observation well recovery data are also included. Full page illustrations and easy to read tables are utilized to greatly reduce the learning curve. The Theis Without Graphs computer program is also provided, along with many data sets that can be used to test these methods. The program also provides a step-drawdown solution and the ability to model a pump test. Theis Without Graphs is easy to use! It has been tested by hydrogeology students and engineers, and provides an extensive output.
book and computer program are both user friendly.
"Dr. Kasenow has shown both his creativity and drive to build on, rather than simply follow techniques developed by others. His books present relatively complex concepts in easy to understand graphic form without oversimplification." --- Dana R. Unangst, Project Manager, Insight Environmental Services, Inc.
"It is refreshing to see someone looking at alternatives to complicated and sometimes subjective curve matching techniques." --- Scott R. Green, Senior Hydrogeologist, Conestoga-Rovers & Associates.
"As President of a consulting firm, I am always concerned with balancing costs and providing clients with complete and thorough data evaluations. Dr. Kasenow's practical application techniques have allowed my firm to complete thorough data evaluations at lower costs. Once one uses Dr. Kasenow's data evaluation programs, you are left with the feeling of 'why did I waste my time with other programs?" --- Mark. B. Sweatman, CPG, President, Insight Environmental Services, Inc.
