ACE080 Hydrogeology lp4 VT21 (7.5 hp)

Course is offered by the department of Architecture and Civil Engineering

Course purpose

The overall aim of this course is to give the students an advanced understanding of hydrogeology in groundwater resource management in groundwater supply and infrastructure. In doing so, the focus of the course is primarily on groundwater hydraulics, design of groundwater abstraction and recharge systems, and resource protection.



Learning objectives and syllabus

Learning objectives:

  • Develop a conceptual hydrogeological model of an aquifer.
  • Plan, establish and perform an investigation program for hydraulic analysis of a groundwater aquifer.
  • Perform a hydraulic analysis of a groundwater aquifer.
  • Evaluate groundwater quality and quantity for water supply.
  • Design a groundwater supply facility.
  • Design a groundwater infiltration facility.
  • Evaluate the protection need for a long-term sustainable use of groundwater resources.
