This course provides guidance on planning a groundwater investigation and modeling study for engineers, hydrologists, and geologists who are responsible for groundwater-related projects. The course materials are based entirely on Chapter 3 of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Engineering Manual EM 1110-2-1421 Groundwater Hydrology. Subsurface investigations are a dynamic and inexact science. This course will present basic guidelines for performing a site characterization study, integrating hydrogeologic information into a conceptual model, performing simple analytical procedures, and formulating a computer model of groundwater flow. Specific attention is given to site reconnaissance, initial data interpretation, data acquisition, the formulation of conceptual and numerical/computer models, and guidelines for project management and personnel requirements.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
