Prerequisite: CWR4202C: Hydraulic Engineering. This course
addresses the study and evaluation of groundwater flow within aquifers. The
course includes a general overview of groundwater geology, groundwater
hydraulics, the hydrologic cycle, well hydraulics, aquifer testing,
salt-water/freshwater interface, and fate and transport of contaminants.
Advanced topics include the derivation of the groundwater flow equation,
development of mathematical solutions to groundwater problems, and modeling
of groundwater flow or contaminant transport. Each student will be required
to develop a final course project as well as develop a lecture on an assigned
groundwater topic related to a recent published journal article.
