Robust data management is central to the success of most environmental projects. Groundwater analytical data progresses through a "life cycle" with several stages, including sample collection and analysis, data validation, database verification, data assembly and analysis, and reporting. At any stage in this cycle, mishandling can lead to errors in analysis and use accenting the need for sound data management practices.

Moreover, robust data management also opens doors to a myriad of opportunities for powerful, flexible, and efficient methods of data analysis, statistical hypothesis testing, and three- and four-dimensional visualization.

This webinar addresses:
    •    Methods for tracking groundwater data in electronic data deliverables and relational databases
    •    Key concepts in data management
    •    Examples of data base verification
    •    Submitting electronic data to regulatory agencies
    •    Geographical information systems and other methods of data analysis and visualization.

Those who will benefit from attending this introductory-to advanced-level Webinar include groundwater professionals from government agencies and consulting firms, and hydrogeology and civil engineering students.
