Description

South Coast Geological Society and Groundwater Resources Association - So.Cal. Branch welcomes you to attend our joint meeting featuring the Groundwater Foundation’s Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecture Series in Groundwater Science. This joint meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, April 3rd, from 6PM to 9PM at Dave & Buster's in Orange, CA (20 City Blvd West Orange, CA 92868). Each year a panel of scientists and engineers chooses an outstanding groundwater professional to share their work throughout the year with peers and students. This years lecture, "Dancing with Models – The Importance of Model Partner Software", will be presented by Dr. John Doherty, 2019 Henry Darcy Distinguished Lecturer and author of PEST, the widely used software package for groundwater model calibration and uncertainty analysis.

Abstract:
Dancing with Models – The Importance of Model Partner Software” will explore how models can best serve the decision-making process. In doing so, it demonstrates the indispensable role that model-value-adding software should play in this process. The lecture also addresses some available packages, as well as an easy-to-use, public domain parallel model run manager with a nonintrusive model interface that allows rapid development of model partner software by any programmer.

Speaker Information:
Dr. Doherty has worked for more than 35 years in the water industry, first as an exploration geophysicist and then as a modeler. He has worked for both government and industry and held positions at numerous universities conducting extensive research and supervising post graduate students. Currently he owns Australian-based Watermark Numerical Computing that specializes in consulting, research, programming, and education on issues related to model deployment in support of environmental management and impact assessment.
