CEE-323/428 Environmental Groundwater Hydrology

Course Description:

The study of subsurface water, its environment, distribution, and movement. Included are flow patterns, well hydraulics, and an introduction to the movement of contaminants. Design problems are included to simulate flow with analytical and numerical models, and contaminant migration using analytical models. Prerequisites: TBD or permission of instructor.
