Daniel Lupton’s professional experience ranges from geophysical well log analysis to evaluation of groundwater and surface water system interactions, and encompasses both field and numerical techniques. He has employed field techniques such as geophysical logging/correlation, water level sampling, and spring discharge surveys in conjunction with groundwater modeling to develop an improved understanding of complex flow systems. Much of Daniel’s research experience has involved evaluations of groundwater basins to quantify local-, intermediate-, and regional-flow regimes. He co-developed a method for evaluating areas of recharge and discharge based on correlations of naturally occurring features. His project experience has centered on aquifer characterization techniques ranging from aquifer hydraulics to lithology/water quality. Additionally, Daniel has considerable experience in the evaluation and characterization of brackish water resources and the geologic units that contain these brackish resources. His current focus is on the analysis of geophysical logs in an attempt to evaluate water quality trends within groundwater basins. Much of this work involves the construction of geologic models using interpolation algorithms that are reflective of paleo-depositional environments. Daniel’s work has afforded him the opportunity to extensively evaluate brackish groundwater resources in a number of aquifers within Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma.
