Groundwater Hydrology - Part 1
This online engineering PDH interactive presentation provides an overview on the occurrence and movement of groundwater. Procedures for planning and managing a site characterization and modeling study are then presented.
In the past 10 years, significant technical progress has been made in the field of computer modeling of groundwater flow. These new modeling technologies have had widespread applications within the field. Similar to many field applications, it is not possible to provide specific instructions and/or specific procedures that are universally applicable to every situation that may be encountered. Therefore, this course emphasizes the use of sound judgement and the development of a good understanding of basic groundwater concepts rather than providing specific guidelines.
This 1 PDH online interactive presentation is applicable to civil and environmental engineers, as well as design and construction personnel involved with the study and analysis of groundwater flow.
This PE continuing education interactive presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Studying the occurrence and movement of groundwater
- Planning a groundwater investigation and modeling study
- Understanding the purpose and applicability of a groundwater study
- Providing general guidelines for performing a site characterization, and integrating hydrogeologic information into a computer model.
Once you finish watching the PDH interactive presentation, you will be redirected to your account to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of ten (10) questions to earn 1 PDH credit. The quiz will be based on this interactive presentation.
