GEOL 210 Hydrogeology

The study of groundwater occurrence, flow, quality, and utilization. The characteristics of the geologic environment which determine the hydrogeologic system are discussed. Principles of groundwater flow, surface water and groundwater interaction, aquifer response to pumping, and regional groundwater flow are examined. The course also focuses on groundwater contamination and remediation (clean-up"). Field projects use a well-field at Metzgar Fields and local remediation sites. Lecture/laboratory.
