  • Volumetrics Study: Studio vs. MVS

    Prior to the formal release of Studio, we did a comprehensive volumetrics study because we were making significant changes to both volumetrics and subsetting (e.g. plume) modules in Studio.  In that study we looked at our new Studio algorithms compared with MVS as a function of grid resolution. We’ve always known that as you increase the resolution of your model, the accuracy ...

  • USGS Groundwater Model: New Tool for Communities in Northern and Central Arizona

    A new groundwater model of the interconnected aquifers in central and northern Arizona was released today by the U.S. Geological Survey, following a multi-year development effort that involved the Arizona Department of Water Resources and regional cooperators.  The computer model, known as the “Northern Arizona Regional Groundwater-Flow Model,” simulates how recharge from ...

  • JPT: Online Digital Rock Portal Launches

    Since the 1990s, X-ray computed tomography (CT) has become increasingly popular for its ability to yield big insights from tiny rock samples. But the volume of data produced from CT scanners is anything but tiny, and that makes sharing and storing the files a challenge. In an effort to address this issue and foster collaboration in an area where there is currently very little, researchers at the ...
