Description

This informative program will familiarize you with the theory and practice of hydrogeology, including guiding principles, basic mathematical principles, the identification of problems, the application of different groundwater models and the limitations of those models. The structure of the course allows you to analyze assigned problems during the week between lecture sessions.

Program Topics

  • Darcy's Law – the basic mathematics of flow-through porous media
  • Basic concepts – hydraulic conductivity, transmissivity, well yields
  • Flow to wells in leaky and non-leaky confined aquifers and unconfined aquifers
  • Determination of hydraulic properties of aquifers, theory and solutions of aquifer tests
  • Behavior, transport and remediation of contaminants in porous media
  • Guidelines for the investigation and remediation of LNAPL and DNAPL
  • Strategies for remediation of groundwater contamination including state-of-the-art innovative technologies
  • The application to groundwater models for predicting the behavior of groundwater plumes and for optimizing groundwater remedies
  • Major NJ and Federal statutes and regulations governing groundwater and recent developments in the NJDEP's groundwater programs
  • And much more!
