Course Outcomes: 

Theoretical Background

Develop an in-depth understanding of the theoretical and mathematical basis of aquifer boundary conditions and the computation of aquifer parameters (hydraulic conductivity, storage coefficient, and transmsissivity).

Applied Technology

  • Develop a working use of the methods of aquifer parameter analysis including graphical and computer based methods.

Problem Solving Techniques

Enhance the ability to solve problems by analyzing real world data sets ( including a final project), some of which do not have a unique solution.

Writing Skills

Become better science writers by weekly practice.
