Hydrogeology Laboratory Semester Project: Hydrogeologic Assessment for CenTex Water Supply, Inc. part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
A semester-long hydrogeology project (groundwater resource assessment) which consists of a series of lab exercises which cover basic hydrogeology concepts while contributing to the overall project. This project ...

Effect of Fractures on Groundwater Flow Patterns part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
This exercise uses TopoDrive (Hsieh, 2001), a simple, easy-to-use model available from the USGS, to explore the effects of fracture heterogeneities on groundwater flow patterns.

Using the EXCEL Woburn Flow and Transport Model to Teach Modeling Concepts part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Modeling ties together many subjects taught in an introductory hydrogeology course. The goals of this activity are for students to learn why scientists and engineers use models, what types of models are commonly ...

'A Civil Action' 1-D Transport Game part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
The 'A Civil Action' 1-D Transport Game is executed in an EXCEL spreadsheet and is designed to help students learn why models are used by scientists and engineers and what procedures must be met to ...

Modeling working group: Learning Finite Differences with a Darcy Apparatus part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
Our working group was charged with coming up with ways of introducing FD techniques. This is a visual (lab) methodology for teaching finite differences using a Darcy column. After students have learned Darcy's ...

Evaluation of watershed land-use changes and hydrologic impacts part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Activities
The USDA-NRCS TR55 method for calculating runoff discharge is used to compare the results of land-use change in a watershed. These data are then compared to a Darcy's Law estimate of groundwater discharge to a ...

Soils as Construction Materials part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This geotechnical project will introduce you with the concept of using soils as construction materials.This project involves characterizing soils using various laboratory analyses and applying the Unified Soil ...

Forestry Management Plan Revision part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
The importance of soils is often underestimated in establishing management or restoration plans. Students examine soils at Echo Valley Park in the field, and use information from the USDA NRCS soil series ...

Soil Biota part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
In teams of two, students collect samples from one or two different environments – agricultural fields, sports turf areas, lawns, forest floor, wetland/pond margin, greenhouse, etc. They construct a Berlese ...

Introduction to urban watershed geochemistry part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
The main goal of this multi-part field and lab exercise is to introduce students to practical aspects of soil and water geochemistry. Some of the analyses for this lab are conducted in the field using field ...
