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.
John Doherty (the author of PEST) conducts a number of professional PEST courses each year. These focus on the use of PEST in groundwater and surface water model calibration, and the use of model-partner software in decision support.
A two day PEST/PEST++ course will be held in Golden, Colorado on 6/7 May 2019 just after the MODFLOW conference. Co-instructors are Jeremy White, Randy Hunt and Mike Fienen.
A two day course which covers model support software, model-usage in decision-making and PEST theory/practice will be held just before the FLOWPATH conference in Milan, Italy on 10/11 June 2019. Co-instructors are Francesca Lotti and Giovanni Formentin.
A five day PEST course will be held in Neuchatel, Switzerland from 9th to 13th September, 2019.
A four day PEST course will be held in the Washington, DC area some time in October 2019.
A four day PEST course will be held in Santiago, Chile starting 25th November, 2019,
