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!

General course information: gw_modeling_specs2017.pdf

Course completion:

To complete the course students should complete six homeworks 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.
