On-demand: Uncertainty analysis in groundwater modelling

Develop confidence in decision-making by learning how to manage uncertainty in modelling results

(Course Code: OD-22-2-042)

Take sessions anytime, at your own pace, with unlimited course access for 30 days.

Join us to explore the guiding principles and workflow process required to design uncertainty analysis when developing a groundwater model.

Working through a real project case study, you will unpack key questions around how a groundwater model addresses the project objective. It will also explain how to design an uncertainty analysis within the project’s time and budget constraints, which will build your understanding of the effect of uncertainty on the project objectives.

Format: x2, 3-hours of training recordings to step through via the learning platform

Details:

There is no single step-by-step methodology for the universal application of an uncertainty analysis, but there is a set of guiding principles and a workflow for conducting an uncertainty analysis.

This is outlined in the Independent Expert Scientific Committee (IESC) on Coal Seam Gas and Large Coal Mining Development Information Guidelines Explanatory Note – Uncertainty analysis–Guidance for groundwater modelling within a risk management framework. This document will help guide the course and discussion.

Risk assessment outcomes should underpin the environmental assessment process and guide technical and modelling work. The course sessions will explore the guiding principles and the workflow process to design uncertainty analysis, giving time for you to ask questions. The course will also provide highly useful information for decision-makers.

Using highly relevant case studies, we will bring the theory into practice and be able to apply it to your own work. While different uncertainty analysis techniques will be briefly discussed, this course will focus on the design of an uncertainty analysis for a groundwater model, rather than the step-by-step implementation of uncertainty analysis techniques in groundwater models.

Part 1 

  • Risk Framework and Study Planning
