Ground Water Modeling
Students model the effects of leaky boreholes on cross-formational ground-water flow and contaminant transport. Several basic modeling skills are learned.
- Obtain hands-on, practical experience in computer modeling.
- Experience the ground-water investigation process from computational analysis to final interpretation.
- Become better prepared for environmental employment.
