Webinar: Groundwater time series analysis

A demonstration of how the HydroGeoSines package for Python can be used to obtain additional insights from existing groundwater hydrograph data

In this webinar our expert presenters will demonstrate the newly-developed HydroGeoSines package for Python that allows an easy way to pre-process and interpret standard groundwater monitoring datasets. This includes the removal of barometric pressure and Earth tide effects, while characterising aquifer types using Barometric Efficiency values and Barometric Response Functions. Attendees will also gain insights into the software’s other features, including estimating aquifer properties such as hydraulic conductivity and specific storage from time series data alone.
