Tutorial PEST Courses
Download a comprehensive tutorial that shows you how to use PEST to undertake state-of-the-art model parameter and predictive uncertainty analysis. Two complete worked examples are provided, one involving a surface water model (HSPF) and the other involving a groundwater model (MODFLOW). Also provided is the background theory (explained in an easy-to-read manner) and suggestions on how modern methods of data processing and uncertainty analysis such as are provided by PEST can be used as critical components of the environmental decision-making process.
Topics covered include the following:
Many thanks to the South Florida Water Management District for making development of this tutorial possible.
Two to three professional PEST courses are normally held each year.
A two-day course on parameter estimation and uncertainty analysis using PEST and Groundwater Vistas will be held following the MODFLOW conference in Golden, Colorado. This will take place over 8th/9th June and will be conducted by John Doherty and Jim Rumbaugh. This will follow a two day course conducted by Sorab Panday, Jim Rumbaugh and John Doherty featuring use and support for MODFLOW-USG.
A five-day course will be held in Belgrade, Serbia starting on Monday 23rd September with heavy emphasis on practical aspects of PEST usage. This will be run by John Doherty with help from Dragan Kaludjerovic.
Beginning on the 6th October, a five day course will be held in Neuchatel, Switzerland. This course will be both practical and theoretical and will cover parameter estimation and uncertainty analysis. It will be run by John Doherty with help from Philip Brunner.
In mid to late October (date has yet to be decided) a course will be held in Bethesda, Maryland. This will feature a two-day beginners course run by Matt Tonkin of SSPA and a two day advanced course run by John Doherty.
