Say goodbye to the manual interpretation of resistivity models to lithologies with this semi-automated data-driven approach.
Increase groundwater transport flow predictability
Predict groundwater with higher confidence
Traditional groundwater models insufficiently reflect structural uncertainty and its potential impact on transport models. The Hydro-Structural Modelling (HSM) module uses resistivity models from geophysical inversion and lithology logs from boreholes as groundwater model inputs.
This data-driven approach reduces uncertainty without manual interpretation of resistivity models to lithologies.
Leverage all your survey data
Relying on borehole data as the primary source of lithological information results in poor spatial coverage but good vertical resolution. Geophysics will give you good spatial coverage but with indirect geological information.
Leveraging geophysical and geological data with this unique inversion approach results in more accurate groundwater predictions.
Account for structural uncertainty in groundwater models
Say goodbye to months of manual interpretation and setup. This data-driven approach leverages resistivity inversion models built-in AGS Workbench and lithology logs. Now you can create input data for groundwater models to better see structural uncertainty – faster!
Got new data? No problem
Easily update the structural inputs if you acquire new data. Model updates can be made in a few clicks, ensuring your models are always based on the most recent data.
Take it one step further
Easily export the resulting clay fraction and cluster models to directly input into a groundwater model setup or a multiple-point statistics (MPS) tool. Create multiple realisations for particle tracking models to visualise water flow.
Developed with Aarhus University
Globally recognised leaders in groundwater modelling, the Hydro Geophysics Group of Aarhus University has driven the development of the HSM module to help better solve your hydrostratigraphic modelling challenges.
See why AGS Workbench is a leader in geophysical software solutions for groundwater modelling:
Make data-driven decisions, quickly
Spend time interpreting your models, not creating them
Seamlessly integrated with AGS Workbench 6.6
Leapfrog Geo offers tools crafted for the geologist and logical workflows that save time and frustration, as well as shorten training times.
Users can learn the fundamentals in just a few days and quickly become proficient, allowing faster modelling and making more time for scientific analysis.
By combining resistivity information from geophysical data and borehole lithologies, the HSM module creates hydrostratigraphic models with a 2-step, semi-automated workflow.
The first step uses accumulated clay thickness (ACT) modelling to create a data-driven clay fraction model, then used inr the second step to create a cluster model.
Sharing and interoperability
Take your workflow one step further by exporting the cluster model and importing it into a groundwater model or multiple-point statistics (MPS) program.
Bridge the gap
The certainty of groundwater predictions based on hydrogeological models is highly dependent on the available input information, which is often limited.
Hydrogeological structure uncertainty can be more accurately estimated through this data-driven workflow, and groundwater prediction uncertainty can be minimised, bridging the gap between geophysics and hydrogeological modelling.
We recommend you use Windows 10, with a reasonably fast processor, mid range graphics and 32GB of system memory.
