Course Description for Advanced Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport

CWR5128: Advanced Groundwater Flow and Contaminant Transport
Prerequisite:  CWR 4202C
Description: 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.
