SSP&A is excited to be able to host the following course in Bethesda,
Maryland (USA) this September, 2008:
"Building and Applying Analytical Element Models with Examples and Exercises
Analytic element models are often refreshingly easy to understand, and
insightful. The best approach to learn the analytic element method is to
implement it in a simple computer program. This sounds daunting, but using
the Python language, it is possible for any hydrogeologist with a basic
understanding of the building blocks of a computer program. In this new
course, you will build your own analytic element model, and have a great
time doing it.
The course is taught by Dr. Mark Bakker. Mark has taught for 10 years at
American universities and now teaches at the Delft University of Technology
in The Netherlands. In addition, Mark is a consultant for Kiwa WR in Holland
and for WHPA in Bloomington, IN. Mark received his Ph.D. at the University
of Minnesota under the guidance of Prof. Otto Strack, the originator of the
analytic element method. Mark has written a number of analytic element
programs, of which TimML, the free, open-source analytic element model for
steady multi-aquifer flow is the most extensive. Mark has taught workshops
in Python for Hydrologists and used Python in his Computational Methods
class at the University of Georgia, where students were programming in
Python after a basic 2 hour lecture.
