Our Services

EarthFX offers advanced data management and analyses services for improved and cost-effective decision making for clients world wide.  Our services can streamline the management, analyses and visualization of resource information by integrating customized databases with interpretive software.   

Environmental Modelling

EarthFX staff have completed hundreds of groundwater, surface water, and contaminant transport numerical models.  These models range from local-scale, steady-state flow models to regional-scale transient models with coupled groundwater/surface-water interaction.  Recent projects have made extensive use of GSFlow, a well-documented and open-source model developed by the U.S. Geological Survey and first released in the spring of 2008.  GSFlow integrates the USGS MODFLOW groundwater model and USGS PRMS surface water model to providing a fully integrated modeling system

Our modelling experience covers:

  • Transient and steady-state groundwater flow modelling
  • 3D Geologic Modelling
  • Water Budget and Water Quantity Analysis
  • Wetland systems source water identification
  • Ecohydrology, Instream flow and Wetland Hydroperiod Analysis
  • Cumulative Impact Assessment
  • Low Impact Development Analysis
  • Water Supply and Capture Zone Analysis
  • Hydrologic Modelling
  • Groundwater resource mapping and modelling
  • Artificial Recharge
  • Mine development and dewatering simulations
  • Tailings pond water budgets

Data Analysis

 

  • Advanced Data Analysis
    • Integrating maps and databases for advanced hydrogeological analysis is a common requirement for groundwater studies.  Using advanced graphical techniques and state-of-the-art software, we are able to create detailed three-dimensional geologic models that are linked to the borehole database. 
    • Advanced geostatistical methods are used to interpolate these data.
    • Visualization of the geologic model and the well data.  This includes plan-view maps, cross sections in any orientation and 3-D views.
  • Geophysical Data Analysis
    • Geophysical logging is an effective means of rapidly establishing the geological structure at new or existing wells.  EarthFX offers advanced multi-dimensional analysis and management of data, plus access to our library of proprietary custom analysis functions.

    Computer Consulting and Training


    Our services include:

    • Earth science database design and development.
    • Custom software development, and software customization
    • Application systems integration
    • Client-server database development
    • Workstation and network-based database systems design and implementation
    • Data stream management and Data Banking

    As effective data management systems require some degree of customization, training is an integral component of our services. Training is offered on a private or classroom basis, with a one-day course leading participants through the use of our SiteFX software system.  Similarly, a two-day training course is offered to introduce new users (or refresh existing users) to VIEWLOG.   For more information, contact us.
