Physical Characterization

The link between data management and understanding is experienced physical characterization of natural systems. AquaResource Inc. offers the experience and technical knowledge necessary to interpret data for geologic, hydrogeologic, hydraulic, hydrologic, groundwater/surface water interaction, geochemical, landuse/landcover, and climate (temperature, wind, solar, precipitation) data to develop an integrated understanding. AquaResource's GIS and data management skills play a key role in facilitating integrated interpretation.

Beyond the interpretation, AquaResource's GIS/3D Visualization tools bring the interpretation to life, allowing our experts to further critique and adjust their interpretation until the images match professional judgement. Such 3D conceptual hydrogeologic models provide the framework for numerical models, and facilitate the generation of detailed simulations. AquaResource's experience and expertise in this area is second to none.

Specific services provided by AquaResource Inc. include:

Water Resource Characterization

  • Bringing together multiple data sources describing features of water resource features in a GIS to integrate hydrogeologic and hydraulic interpretations with other site data.

Contaminant Risk Identification and Assessment

  • Assessment of potential risks to water quality by linking potential contaminant sources, fate and transport properties, and exposure pathways.

Aquifer Characterization & Mapping

  • Utilizing advanced GIS tools to delineate aquifers and estimate hydraulic properties based on available well information.

GIS Hydraulic Analysis

  • Spatial analysis of surface and groundwater flow conditions based on available topographic, hydraulic, hydrogeologic, and climatic data.

Aqueous and Soil Concentration Data Management

  • Assembly, structured management, and real-time visualization of aqueous and soil chemistry data for use in management decision-making.

Contaminant Zone Delineation

  • 3D Visualization and mapping of multiple constituent contaminant zones to delineate source zones and active plumes for use in fate and transport modeling and remediation design.
