On the State of HW

Geoscience Programming With the COVID-19 self-quarantining deep in effect, I gave myself a goal: create mini programs to solve my homework. Why? Because I noticed in my hydrogeologic field methods course, before the pandemic, that it was simpler to write one program to solve a series of problems than to redo calculations ad nauseam. So if "complex" or repetitive calculations are involved, then code. I'd like to say I'm fluent enough in python to make quick work of this; however, it seems I'm a bit rusty, so I've been using matlab as I brush up in my spare time.

Current programs Hydrogeology: Step-Drawdown Test
Matlab .m file that calculates Transmissivity from Discharge, Drawdown, and time using the Rorabaugh (1953) method of analyzing step-drawdown tests. My program uses three steps and takes Q in gpm, s in ft, & t in hours. Uses a checksum to verify calculations and then appends data to an excel file.
