The well-n-calm is a resource to guide archiving various well data related to groundwater problems in California. Currently, it is focused to provide a consistent format to organize compiled well data in Envrionmental Geophysics group at Stanford. We share our lessons learned to compile well data in our group for past 5 years while solving groundwater problems in California. List of major projects incuding well data are:

  • Butte
  • Kaweah (Tulare)
  • Indian Wells Valley
  • San Louis Obispo

With the organization of well data in these projects, we also develop a basic python code base such that one can easily explore the existing data sets, import new data, and export the data sets to various formats (e.g. LAS, CSV).
