GW flow&cont.transp

On this page you may find some information about the Course GW Flow and Contaminant Transport Modeling. You may freely download any material and use it using correct citation! Thank You!

Please read the following inromation about the course: gw_modeling_specs_2021.pdf

Course time schedule:time_schedule_2021.pdf

Course completion:

To complete the course students should complete several assignments and should pass an exam consists of a stand-alone building of a model of a hydraulic or transport problem. 
Please search for the menu SW & Literature to download software needed and some additional readings.  

Assignments (deadline: last Monday of the semester, take care on submitting your assignments both in pdf printed and digital (data sets) forms as written in the description!)

Good books:

Two very good book on hydrogeological topics can be downloaded free of charge from The Groundwater Project's site:

Freeze - Cherry: Groundwater

Woessner - Poeter: Hydrogeologic Properties of Earth Materials and Principles of Groundwater Flow 

 

Additional readings:
