Spreadsheet analysis of chemical hydrographs part of Activities
This is a good activity to have students practice spreadsheet analysis skills on a medium large data set. It also helps them understand stream hydrographs and baseflow/quickflow components.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Water Resources part of Activities
This activity will demonstrate how water quality and environmental health issues can be analyzed together, how hydrologic information can be built up, and how decisions can be made using GIS.
Water and Mud: Linking hydrogeology and landscape change part of Activities
Hydrogeology textbooks usually do a poor job in linking groundwater to Earth's surface processes, yet the two are closely linked. It is important for the hydrogeology student to understand that surface and ...
Western water law project part of Activities
This activity allows students to use role-playing to learn about the connection between surface water and ground water.
Using the EXCEL Woburn Flow and Transport Model to Teach Modeling Concepts part of 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 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 ...
Evaluation of watershed land-use changes and hydrologic impacts part of 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 ...
Service Learning and Local Hydrogeology in the Classroom: An example from Anchorage, Alaska part of Activities
A semester long project in which students work in small groups to analyze a local hydrogeology issue of importance to the community.
Borehole Logging from Sample Collection to Borehole Geophysics part of Activities
Drilling the borehole is only the beginning. Data collection, handling and interpretation are the most important aspects to the field hydrogeologist. This session will use an exercise that combines both physical ...
Analysis of clay layer compression part of Activities
Students analyze time series data for ground subsidence in response to dewatering, to derive estimates of the compressibility and vertical hydraulic conductivity of a clay lens.
