Course ObjectiveThe goal of this course is to deepen the understanding of groundwater
processes for which the Groundwater Processes course laid the
fundamentals. The objective is to make the student thoroughly familiar
with the modelling of groundwater flow processes and the transport of
solutes through groundwater systems.
Course ContentHydrogeology is to a large extent concerned with the flow of water in
the subsurface. Groundwater flow models are powerful tools to study this
movement of water in the subsurface. Hence, they are widely used in
research and consultancy, and thus a key skill for hydrologists. This
course you will deepen your understanding of groundwater flow modelling
and develop basic programming skills to investigate these processes.
Moreover, fundamental transport processes taking place in groundwater
bodies will be included in this (advection, diffusion, dispersion,
first-order reactions) using numerical methods.
Teaching MethodsThe course consists of a set of lectures supplemented with practicals.
Method of AssessmentWritten examination, presentations and practicals
