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.
This course is reserved for Environmental Engineering Technology Degree program. Students will require department approval prior to registration. Please contact Program Assistant email@example.com or call 604-432-8539.

Upon successful completion of the course, the student will be able to:
Prepare spreadsheets/databases containing input data/parameters for various models.
Apply mathematical formulations used to determine hydraulic conductivity using a spreadsheet.
Apply mathematical formulations to simulate 1-D advection dispersion contaminant transport using a spreadsheet.
Develop contour maps for groundwater flow, chemical concentrations, and NAPL thicknesses.
Simulate contaminant transport that is undergoing biotransformation.
Prepare a conceptual site model that represents the chosen site based on modeling results.
