Groundwater Contamination and Transport EASC 630 (3)
An introduction to contaminant hydrogeology and mass transport processes in groundwater regimes. Topics include: natural groundwater quality: sources of contamination, for example, from mine waste, agriculture, saltwater intrusion, and industrial activities; and the processes and principles governing mass transport, including advection, dispersion and diffusion. The course also explores methodologies for site investigation as well as various remediation methods. Prerequisite: Permission of instructor. Undergraduate physical hydrogeology and aqueous geochemistry courses required. Students with credit for EASC 410 may not take this course for further credit.
