Hydraulic Conductivity of Porous Media Exercise part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
This activity provides the hydrogeology students an exercise to understand specific discharge, hydraulic conductivity, and porous media. They will actually use a Darcy column to gather data on porous media, as well as calculate and understand the hydrologic properties of the materials.
Isotopes in the Hydrogeologic System part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Activities
The students will use activities to understand atomic mass and isotopes and stable isotopic fractionation in the hydrologic system.
Environmental Geology part of Cutting Edge:Hydrogeology:Hydrogeology, Soils, Geochemistry 2013:Courses
Throughout this environmental geology course, we will use geology to help understand conflicts in land use and potential hazards, to understand the root of and how to minimize environmental degradation, and to maximize the beneficial results of using our natural and modified environments. In addition to lectures, we will evaluate current environmental geology events and controversial topics, through article presentations, field trips, and debates.
