NGEA09012U Water Resources (1+2)
The course will integrate disciplines such as Quaternary geology, hydrogeophysics, hydrochemistry/isotopes and hydrogeology. Focus is on illustrating the worth of different sources of data. Fundamentals of groundwater flow and introduction to transport theory. Geological and hydrogeological modeling using advanced software. Hydrogeophysical measurements of key features in catchment. Use of hydrochemical and isotopic tracers to identify sources of water and assign apparent groundwater ages. Groundwater pollution from agricultural contaminants.
- Quarternary geology, hydrogeophysics, hydrochemistry/isotopes and hydrogeology
- Fundamentals of groundwater flow and introduction to transport theory
- Hydrogeophysical measurements
- Hydrochemical and isotopic tracers
- Groundwater pollution from agricultural contaminants.
The course will provide a theoretical overview of the various fluxes of the hydrological cycle and how they can be measured estimated by models of different complexity:
- The issue of scale
- Hydrological modelling and water balance assessment at catchment scale
- Modelling activities integrating several disciplines including hydrology, Quatertary geology, hydrogeophysics, contaminant hydrology, hydrochemistry/isotopes and hydrogeology
- Field data
Please see Absalon course page.
All students must hand in a written assignment after block 1. The assignment must be approved by the teacher. Students can choose to follow block 1 only and get 7.5 ECTS credits based on the teachers' approval of the written assignment.
Students must have an approved block 1 assignment to continue with the course and participate in the block 2 exam.
