Outcrop to Output Hydrostructural Geology: Structural Controls on Groundwater Flow in Bedrock Formations

Wednesday, May 4, 2022 | 8:00am - 4:00pm | Bordentown, NJ

Rutgers Eco Complex COVID Information. Please Read.

Face Masks are required inside the Eco Complex building with the exception of eating & drinking. You will also be asked to sign a COVID tracing form at registration.

Description:

Unlike the conceptualization of flow through a porous medium, comprehension of groundwater flow within fractured rock formations requires visualization of the three-dimensional framework of the discrete planar discontinuities through which water flows. Combining the spatial analysis of discontinuity networks with the principles and practices of traditional groundwater geology, Hydrostructural Geology provides for both the visualization and quantification of groundwater flow within structural domains of differing, sometimes overlapping, scales of observation.

In this interactive course, a refresher on the concepts and methods of structural geology is integrated with an in-depth quantitative analysis of a gravity flow system constrained within discrete, confined, two-dimensional pathways not co-oriented with the prevailing hydraulic gradient. Building on the conceptualization of groundwater movement through a network of discrete, intersecting, non-randomly-oriented planar discontinuities, attendees will:

  • Integrate field relations into hydrogeologic solutions
  • Evaluate structurally-controlled deflection of contaminant plumes
  • Assess the effects of the scale of observation on heterogeneity and anisotropy
  • And, explore the behavior of separate phase liquids/gases in hydrostructural domains

Instructor:

Thomas D. Gillespie, P.G. – Structural Hydrogeologist; 38 years consulting to geo-resource-based industries: water resource management; mining; oil & gas exploration; engineering geology; environmental investigation; geologic hazard assessment & mitigation. Currently Principal Principal Geologist at Gilmore & Associates, Inc., Allentown PA, heading up the geoResource Risk Reduction Group. Two consecutive six-year terms as a Gubernatorial appointee on the Pennsylvania State Registration Board for Professional Engineers, Land Surveyors and Geologists and served two terms as President of that Board. Pennsylvania’s representative to the National Association of State Boards of Geology (twelve years), including serving on the Executive Committee; currently a Member at Large as a subject matter expert in structural geology, hydrogeology and engineering geology. Board of Directors, Marcellus Shale Coalition for six years. Qualified expert witness in groundwater, contaminant fate and transport, stormwater, oil and gas, mining and land use; litigation support in all levels of the court system. Institutional expert consultation to the Department of the Army’s Technical Assistance Team. Adjunct professor of geology since 1988. Continuing professional education instruction since 1992.

Organizer Continuing Professional Education Services, LLC

Organizer of Outcrop to Output Hydrostructural Geology

Continuing Professional Education Services, LLC (CPES), the product of PB&J Continuing Professional Education Services, LLC and has the mission of providing continuing education courses to professionals as well as lectures and special events to the professional community. CPES will be offering courses that provide required credits for Licensed Site Remediation Professionals, attorneys, professional engineers and many other professionals certified and/or licensed in the states of Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania to name a few.

Continuing Professional Education Services, LLC is the brain child of Dr. Jorge H. Berkowitz and Philip I. Brilliant. From the inception of the Continuing Environmental Education for Professional (CEEP) program at the College of Science and Mathematics (CSAM) at Montclair State University, Dr. Berkowitz and Mr. Brilliant have been in the classroom and in the boardroom assuring the success of the program. In order to better serve the community of professionals, Dr. Berkowitz and Mr. Brilliant stepped forward with a solution that has saved the ability to offer continuing education credit-bearing courses.
