CCN: GLY4820 Title: Hydrogeology Credit Hrs: 3.00
Description : 
This course provide an introduction to the theory and principles of ground water flow as well as stream flow. Topics include the hydrologic equation, evapotranspiration, well drilling and and testing, porosity and permeability, Darcy's law, confined and unconfined aquifers, water table maps, well logs, and hydrographs. An important aspect of the course is the geological control on groundwater. The movement of water from wells to Regional settings are explored. The mathematical equations used to describe groundwater flow are examined. Commonly used methods for measuring aquifer properties are discussed. Additional topics such as water law, aquifer contamination, and aquifer management will be introduced. Salt Water intrusion in Biscayne, FL or other similar examples will be examined. This course examines fluid flow through porous materials and the mathematics used to interpret hydraulic test data.
