Event description

Description

The IAH WA Tech Talks feature speakers from hydrogeology and related sciences. These monthly events are the premier networking opportunity for water professionals in Western Australia.

Tech Talks are held on the 4th Wednesday of every month.

For our November event, please join us for IAH WA’s annual student night and the IAH Australia and IAH WA AGMs.

IAH WA is always on the lookout for new members. If you’re interested in joining the IAH WA committee please register your interest prior to the AGM via email: wa.branch@iah.org.au


During the night we’ll award the Simon Neild cash prize to the best presentation on the night. The presenters are as follows:


Olga Filitspova , MSc, UWA

Estimation of hydrologeological parameters from geological and petrophysical data

Novel techniques are employed using existing logging data to estimate a range of hydrogeological parameters. These techniques are applied to Roy Hill project data and present opportunities to add value to without additional costs.

David Schafer, PhD, UWA

Fluoride and phosphate release from carbonate-rich fluorapatite during Managed Aquifer Recharge

The injection of highly-treated low-TDS water for the Beenyup groundwater replenishment trial coincided with fluoride- and phosphate- pulses observed in proximal monitoring bores. David’s modelling assessments suggest that carbonate-rich fluorapatite is the most likely source. Disequilibrium caused by calcium removal (from deionised injectate) triggers the elevated fluoride and phosphate concentrations. The presentation considers the implications for this and other MAR projects.

Caroline Mather, PhD, UWA

Paleohydrological conditions of the Fortescue Marsh: Insights from groundwater dolocrete

The geochemistry and stable isotope compositions of calcretes and dolocretes are assessed in the Fortescue Marsh region. These data are used to reconstruct the hydrological processes and chemical conditions involved in dolomite formation. The data are also used to provide valuable paleo-environmental and paleo-hydrological records.


We encourage members to join us for drinks and nibbles at 5:30pm before the presentation starts at 6pm sharp.

The venue is located within the CBD and is easily accessible by public transport. For those arriving by car, the closest carpark is Council House.




IAH WA is proud to be supported by Tech Source Solutions, Gold sponsors for the 2017 series of technical presentations.
