Rutgers" Practical Applications in Hydrogeology Training Program (Date TBD)
From Darcy's Law to DNAPL, the field of hydrogeology can be mystifying. As an environmental professional, you need to make sense of the scientific principles and jargon and, most importantly, put them into practice in the field. 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. Students have the option of signing up for an optional 4th day of class (May 31, 2012 - additional fee of $215 required) where they will gain personalized instruction devoted to well design and aquifer pumping tests. There will be instruction in the management of pumping test data and the management and evaluation of laboratory data.
