GEL 4250 - Hydrogeology (Groundwater)

Credits: 4

Prerequisite(s): GEL 1010, CHE 1800, MTH 1110

Prerequisite(s) or Corequisite(s): GEL 3420

Description: This course is a practical approach to the study of groundwater with emphasis on water quality, underground flow, pumping, and infiltration/recharge principles in relationship to the geologic environment. The course includes practical methods of laboratory water quality testing, groundwater flow analysis and experimentation, as well as septic system design and evaluation. Since mathematical models are involved, familiarity with graphing and algebraic operations is of essence. A foundational knowledge in geology is prerequisite.

Field Trips: Self-guided group fieldtrips are required for this course.
