Hydr 404 (s) Special Topics (cr arr)
Hydr J409/J509 Quantitative Hydrogeology (3 cr)
A rigorous introduction to the description of flow in porous media; the basic equations of potential flow theory as they relate to ground water problems, with application to common engineering problems encountered by hydrogeologists and engineers; dimensional analysis, properties assignment, and heterogeneous systems. For graduate credit additional reading, presentations, and/or written reports of assigned literature required.
Hydr J412/J512 Environmental Hydrogeology (3 cr)
Methods of hydrogeologic site characterization for the delineation of environmental problems such as contaminated ground water plumes, and ground water dewatering for landslide remediation. For grad credit, students are required to complete an additional independent research paper/project.
Prereq: Geol 309
Hydr J413/J513 Ground Water Resource Evaluation (3 cr)
Quantitative methods for the estimation of aquifer coefficients related to ground water resource evaluations. For grad credit, students are required to complete an additional independent research paper/project.
Prereq: Geol 309
Hydr J414/J514 Ground Water-Surface Water Interaction (3 cr)
Physical and chemical ramifications of interactions between ground water flow systems and surface water bodies. Particular emphasis will be placed on water supply and surface water/ground water contamination issues. Graduate credit requires completion of an additional, separate research paper on a selected topic. (Alt/yrs)
Hydr 496 Hydrogeology Senior Thesis (3 cr)
Completion of original research and report. Course is taken over two semesters; first semester is graded IP until completion of second semester.

Hydr 568 Aquifer Test Design and Analysis (3 cr)
Analysis of single and multiple well aquifer tests in a range of hydrogeologic environments. Additional projects/assignments required for graduate credit.
Hydr 576 Fundamentals of Modeling Hydrogeologic Systems (3 cr)
Development and application of models representing physical systems, with particular emphasis on ground water flow. Development and solution of the basic equations of potential flow will be covered, along with their assumptions and limitations. Properties assignment, parameter sensitivity, and dimensional analysis will also be discussed. The course will emphasize when modeling is appropriate, how to design a model, and how properties should be selected to achieve meaningful results.
