New Zealand-based Seequent has released an extension to facilitate modelling contaminated sites for its 3D modelling suite Leapfrog Works.

The firm says that the new tool creates robust 3D models of subsurface contaminant plumes to assist with estimation of contaminants. to facilitate communication and understanding during response and management of a contaminated site.

Seequent’s Environmental Segment Director, Dr. Thomas Krom, said that the extension provides a robust solution to replace cumbersome workflows to model contaminant plumes with spreadsheets or GIS.

“By combining 3D dynamic geological models with best practice geostatistical methods, we’re enabling people to build, maintain, communicate and track defensible interpretations and mitigation strategies for contamination resolution – enabling better, transparent decision-making,” he said.

“The Contaminants extension leverages Leapfrog’s intuitive workflows to allow users to be productive almost immediately, making industry-standard geostatistics accessible for everyone and valuable on any sized project.”

Seequent has also released an eBook [PDF] on building a robust model of a contaminated site.
