http://www.geo.umass.edu/faculty/boutt/Courses/GEOSCI587/

David Boutt, University of Massachusetts - Amherst


This is the home page of a hydrogeology course taught by Dr. David Boutt at the University of Massachusetts. The website includes the course syllabus, lecture notes, homework assignments and lab activities (including three field labs). The course addresses the hydrologic cycle, Darcy's Law, aquifer parameters, steady and transient flow equations, well hydraulics, elementary multi-phase flow, groundwater recharge, watershed hydrology, geological controls on groundwater flow, well construction, and groundwater chemistry and pollution.
