Eligibility:


In order to be eligible for a second cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme that owns the course. (If the second cycle course is owned by a first cycle programme, second cycle entry requirements apply.)
Exemption from the eligibility requirement: Applicants enrolled in a programme at Chalmers where the course is included in the study programme are exempted from fulfilling these requirements.

Course specific prerequisites

Basic knowledge in engineering geology and hydrogeology, corresponding to at least 15 ECTS, e.g. the courses Engineering Geology (BOM200) and Hydrogeology and Geotechnics (BOM370).

Aim

The overall aim of this course is to give the students an advanced understanding of hydrogeology in groundwater resource management in groundwater supply and infrastructure. In doing so, the focus of the course is primarily on groundwater hydraulics, design of groundwater abstraction and recharge systems, and resource protection.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

  • Develop a conceptual hydrogeological model of an aquifer.
  • Plan, establish and perform an investigation program for hydraulic analysis of a groundwater aquifer.
  • Perform a hydraulic analysis of a groundwater aquifer.
  • Evaluate groundwater quality and quantity for water supply.
  • Design a groundwater supply facility.
  • Design a groundwater infiltration facility.
  • Evaluate the protection need for a long-term sustainable use of groundwater resources.

Content

The focus of the course is on groundwater hydraulics, design of groundwater abstraction and recharge systems, and resource protection.

Organisation

Teaching is based on lectures and exercises, supported by project work, lab-work and fieldwork.

Literature

The course literature includes excerpts from books and reports, and scientific publications.

Examination including compulsory elements

Three types of examination are used in the course: written exam, project assignment and mandatory lab-work and fieldwork.
