The course covers theory relevant for advanced studies and research within the field of hydrogeology and groundwater resources.
The goal of the course is to strengthen the knowledge base of students beyond introductory level by investigating the scientific research frontier regarding three central themes of research in hydrogeology: Soil water and groundwater, subsurface transport of waterborne substances (tracers, nutrients, contaminants), and groundwater resource variability and change.
The course is part of Master's Programme in Hydrology, Hydrogeology and Water Resources but can also be read as a separate course.
Instruction consists of lectures, seminars, exercises and project work

ScheduleThe schedule will be available no later than one month before the start of the course. We do not recommend print-outs as changes can occur. At the start of the course, your department will advise where you can find your schedule during the course.
Course literatureNote that the course literature can be changed up to two months before the start of the course.
Articles and other materials made available in connection with teaching are also included as course literature.
Meet our researchers
We investigate natural processes and anthropogenic effects and their variability and change in water, land and permafrost environments.
