Groundwater Investigations And Technology
This course focuses on ground water
availability/ flow/ storage/ intermixing/ investigation while simultaneously
bringing out the advanced/ relevant theories/ practices/ techniques of practical
importance. The topics covered include occurrence and movement of ground water,
advanced well hydraulics, pollution and quality analysis of ground water surface/
sub-surface investigation of ground water, artificial ground water recharge,
and saline water intrusion in aquifers, modeling and management of ground
The purpose of this course is to understand the principles
and application of ground water engineering.
By the end of this course, the student
should be able to:
Explain the occurrence and movement of
groundwater within a geological formation
describe some geological terms that are
related groundwater exploration and development
