Wesley McCall, Geologist, Geoprobe Systems, Inc., Salina, KS
Mr. McCall earned his B.S. and M.S. in Geology from Clemson University and the University of Missouri, respectively. He is a licensed geologist (KS28) and has managed investigations using direct push technology for over 20 years. Mr. McCall joined Geoprobe in 1995 where he conducts applications research related to groundwater and environmental investigations. He is active in the ASTM D18 Subcommittee on direct push technology where he has assisted in development of several standards. Wes worked with the Geoprobe R&D team to develop the Pneumatic Slug Test system used for the determination of hydraulic conductivity in wells. He also developed the Mechanical Bladder pump for low flow water quality sampling in small diameter wells. Recently, Wes has been involved with application of Geoprobe’s hydraulic profiling tool (HPT) logging system to evaluate formation permeability and provide high resolution estimates of formation hydraulic conductivity.
