Fracture Trace and Lineament Analysis - Application to Groundwater Characterization and Protection - Course

0

This opportunity presents instruction in the skills of identifying bedrock type and mapping fractures and lineaments of stereopair aerial photographs and appropriate satellite images for investigative site analyses. Fracture trace and photogeologic analysis is a recognized field tool hydrogeologists, geoscientists, and engineers use for locating high-yield wells and/or wellfields, springs, wetlands, and pollutant sources; siting monitoring wells in aquifers dominated by fracture flow; intercepting pollutants for aquifer restoration; and characterizing the state and nature of bedrock and surficial deposits for foundation and slope stability investigations and related geotechnical projects (room stability in mines and tunnels, landfills, and dam sites). Geoscientists and engineers with a working knowledge of fracture trace analysis eliminate much guesswork and uncertainty involved in field projects.
