This course is designed to provide learners with the groundwater and conceptual modelling underlying the science of physical and chemical hydrogeology, as well as with the hands-on skills to successfully run selected groundwater related models. Lecture material covers principles of groundwater modeling with emphasis on commercial models available to environmental consultants and how to develop a conceptual site model. The course will cover model input parameters, such as: type of source(s), chemical characteristics, and hydrogeologic parameters. Computer laboratory sessions involve case studies using groundwater modeling tools, such as; contour plotting, biodegradation of hydrocarbons, and biotransformation of chlorinated solvents. As the course progresses the student will develop and update a conceptual site model that reflects subsurface conditions.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be able to:
