Technical Report WRD92039 Viewed at 15:07:17 on 29/07/2010 Page 118 of 192. 8 capabilities of each of these laUer packages is summarised In a booklet which is already In the possession of the PAWA:, these capab!l!Ues will not be repeated here. However on e.xamlnlng this booklet, the following packages appealed to me as possibly presenting to the PAWA a complement to the interpretallon and display capab!l!tles that they wUl have if they use Clarke's software as U,elr Interpretational base. Note that the capabilltles of some of these packages overlap to a greater or lesser extent. 1. Graphical ,VeIl Analysis Package: this package is used for screen-based curve fitung, though it has a hardcopy output fac!l!!y. Pumped and monitortng wells can Simultaneously be fitted to the appropriate CUlYe, Model options not available in Clarke's software include pumped bore storage and slug test curves. 2. HJMATCH: Inversion package for fully penetrated, leaking, confmed aquifers. Multiple (,bservation bores can be handled and directional IransmisslviUes can be calculated. 3. TS-MATCH: this appears to be the equivalent of HJ-MATCH for nonleah-y confined aquifers. 4. ViH!P: a very powert'ul automatlc aquifer parameter esttrnation package. wiLl1 screen graphicS and hardcopy output fac!lities: pumped bore storage, partial penetratlc n and multiple wells are all ha..'"1dled. 5. AQUlX: forward and inverse modelling for confined and unconfined. leab.-y aquifers: partial penetration and gravity d..-aiIlage (Neuman's model) are Included: screen graphics and hardcopy output (not printers) are Included. 6. AQUA-VU: parameter estinlatlon through mathematical Inversion for four aquifer model types. Screen graphics and hardcopy facilities are unknown. It should be noted, however. that AQTESOLV appears to Include most of the features found in the above programs. It is disappointing that provision is not made in it for variable dischar"e rate or pumped-bore storage, but its graphical curve-matching and weighted least squares capabillties are quite impressive.
