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.
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.
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 ...
Pollution in the Environment part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Courses
In this course you will obtain theoretical skills required to understand how natural and anthropogenic factors influence pollutant behavior on Earth's near-surface environments. We will primarily focus on ...
Sustainable World part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Courses
Sustainable World introduces students to the field of sustainability and explores the fundamental question of how human and natural systems interact. Sustainable World focuses more on how the environment functions, ...
Fundamentals of Water Quality part of Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Courses
Introduction to chemical processes affecting the behavior of major and minor chemical species in the aquatic environment. Physical, equilibrium, inorganic/organic, and analytical principles as applied to natural ...
