Ground Water Modeling: Introduction to
Academic Noncredit

Fundamentals of groundwater flow and transport modeling will be introduced in the computer laboratory using hands-on exercises performed with the Groundwater Modeling System (GMS) and the U.S.G.S. groundwater models MODFLOW, MODPATH, and FEMWATER. By the end of the 5-week short-course, each student should understand the assumptions and limitations of the modeling approach and be able to create, run and interpret the results of 2-D groundwater flow and transport simulations using GMS. Topics covered include: defining mathematical/numerical equivalents to real world problems, finite difference method, finite element method and sensitivity studies.

This noncredit class meets with a regular University of Utah credit course.

Online book and material fees may be added up until the first week of class. Students may opt out during the first two weeks of class. For more information, visit the Campus Store Inclusive Access Program's webpage. If you opt out, you will be responsible for obtaining the course materials yourself for the course.
