Volumes Estimations of Aquifers in the San Juan Basin, New Mexico
Track: Water Resources
Authors: Chang-Heng Yang
Volume estimations of target rocks were performed to assess groundwater resources from hydraulic fracturing in the San Juan Basin, NM. Model Builder was used to extract data from our database and generate 3D point data. TIN surfaces were used to evaluate outliers. The volume was determined by interpolated surfaces, generated by point data that honor real-world geologic outcrop data. This project provides an efficient workflow and precise calculation in a big scale project.
