Office Hours: Tues. 3:45p-5p (EC 230), Thurs. 4:00-5:00 pm, or at other times by appointment, Room EC237.
Texts (recommended but not required):
Groundwater occurrence, flow principles, flow to wells, and regional flow. Groundwater contamination, management, and numerical modeling.
In this class we will study the occurence and movement of groundwater, focusing on quantitiative analysis. Students will gain abilities to analyze the drawdown of the groundwater table near pumping wells, and to examine the potential land subsidence associated with that. There will also be a focus on regional groundwater movement employing the computer model MODFLOW, probably the most widely used groundwater model, and to evaluate the sustainability of using groundwater as a water source.
