8th International Conference on the Analytic Element Method
We are pleased to announce the Eighth International Conference on the Analytic Element Method! The conference will be held on May 20 and May 21, 2017 on the campus of the Colorado School of Mines in Golden, Colorado. The 2017 MODFLOW and More conference is held directly following the AEM conference. For detailed information, please visit the conference website AEM2017.
McLane Environmental offers new AEM tutorials & training
flexAEM System offers an easy introduction to groundwater modeling using analytic element software. The system consists of hands-on tutorials, courses, software tools, and “best practice” tips to introduce you to analytic element modeling at your own pace. flexAEM materials are designed to help experienced modelers add a fast and powerful new technique to their toolkit, or to help hydrogeologists and engineers make the calculations they need without the steep learning curve of complex modeling software.

AnAqSimEdu - new free educational version of AnAqSim (analytic aquifer simulator).
AnAqSimEdu was developed as a supplement to the 2nd edition of the textbook Groundwater Science, published by Elsevier. AnAqSimEdu simulates single-layer steady flow with confined, unconfined, and interface domains. Allows heterogeneity and anisotropy. Line boundaries include: head-specified, normal flux-specified, river, interdomain. Nice user interface. Available at this link:
