Advanced Hydrogeology

  • 7.5 credits

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.
