This course provides guidance on the occurrence and movement of groundwater for engineers, hydrologists, and geologists who are responsible for groundwater-related projects. The course materials are based entirely on Chapter 2 of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' Engineering Manual EM 1110-2-1421 Groundwater Hydrology. The occurrence and movement of groundwater are related to physical forces acting in the subsurface and the geologic environment in which they occur. This course presents a general overview of basic concepts which explain and quantify these forces and environments as related to groundwater. A discussion on saltwater intrusion is also included.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
