Objective:    

Students who complete the module:

Learning objectives

Knowledge

  • On fundamental hydrogeology.
  • On the basic principle of numerical groundwater modelling.
  • On chemical transport, dispersion, sorption/retardation and degradation in the groundwater zone.
  • On evaluating the uncertainty of the model results.

Skills

  • To collect, analyse and visualise the various data that forms the basis for the conceptual model.
  • To construct, calibrate and validate groundwater models.
  • To simulate water and contaminate transport.
  • To evaluate and quantify modelling uncertainty.

Competences

  • To evaluate and handling hydrological data that forms the basis for groundwater modelling.
