Intern experience with William F. Guyton & Associates: an internship report
MetadataShow full item record
This report is a review of the author's experience as an intern with William F. Guyton & Associates. William F. Guyton & Associates is a consulting groundwater hydrology firm with offices in Austin and Houston, Texas. The intern worked at the main office in Austin for the duration of the internship. The author worked on a variety of projects during the internship. These projects encompassed general groundwater studies, computer simulation, technical analyses of aquifer parameters, and inspection of water well construction and testing. General groundwater studies involved the collection of water well construction and chemical analyses data. The author wrote several computer codes to handle basic computations, and the author used several existing finite difference codes to simulate groundwater movement. The technical analyses of pumping test data were analyzed by the author to determine aquifer parameters. The field work involved on-site inspection of water well construction and involved quality control of the pumping test after construction. The author interacted with various agencies of the state and federal government. This interaction was necessary to many of the projects. The collection of water well data and the use of the finite difference codes gave the author the opportunity to obtain knowledge of the daily operations of these agencies.
