    Webinar presenter

    Scott Wendling, P.G., Vice President

    ARM Geophysics

    This webinar is designed for geologists, engineers, and environmental specialists who want to maximize information from exploratory wells by using geophysical logs and images. It will focus primarily on the environmental and hydrogeological applications. After a discussion on logging tools/methods, the webinar will focus on the interpretation of geophysical and imaging logs.  Examples and case studies will be discussed to provide the attendees with an understanding of how logs and images are used to determine lithology, correlate stratigraphy, characterize structure, and identify water producing and receiving zones.

    Level: Intermediate

    Who should attend: Professional Geologists, Project Managers, Geologists in Training, Environmental Scientists, and related professionals that have a need to characterize the hydrogeological, structural, and geotechnical aspects of the subsurface.

    About our presenter:  Scott Wendling, P.G. is a senior geologist and geophysicist for ARM Geophysics in Hershey, Pennsylvania.  He currently serves as Vice President and is responsible for all geophysical services provided by ARM.  He has more than 31 years of experience managing and performing surface and borehole geophysical surveys for environmental, engineering, and exploration projects.  Mr. Wendling received his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science Degrees in Geology from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale.  Mr. Wendling’s Master’s Degree focused on geophysics and his Master’s Thesis was part of a consortium jointly sponsored by the U.S. Geological Survey and the Geological Survey of Canada, and included several U.S. and Canadian Universities.  He has been a licensed Professional Geologist in Pennsylvania since 1994.

    Webinar presenter

    Thomas Gillespie, P.G., Senior Professional Geologist

    Gilmore and Associates


    Consulting hydrogeologists are convinced they are uniquely possessed of the definitive conceptualization of hydrogeologic conditions at any site...and so is every other hydrogeologist representing every other party on those same sites. Risks to regulated parties escalate when the arbiter of the hydrogeologists’ disparate opinions is a non-geologist regulator, or, even worse, a judge. To such arbiters, the science of hydrogeology is a black box, into which the recent SCOTUS Functional Equivalency Test has cast an even deeper umbra.  Project uncertainties can be reduced by consulting hydrogeologists when they synthesize their esoteric and indirect measurements into reasoned, compliant, and ultimately defensible strategies defined and directed in cooperation with corporate environmental managers and attorneys.

    This web-based course provides consulting hydrogeologists, corporate environmental managers and environmental attorneys with jargon-free explanations of the decision-relevant hydrogeologic factors they can leverage into integrated technical/regulatory strategies to achieve successful closures of environmental investigation and remediation cases and defensible technical cases in the event of legal challenges.

    Level: Intermediate - Course presumes knowledge of environmental requirements and regulations and a working familiarity with hydrogeology.

    Who should attend: Licensed professional geologists, professional environmental engineers, corporate environmental managers, environmental attorneys.
