GEOL 1150 - Water, Energy and Environment: An Introduction to Earth Resources
Explores how geological processes and human populations together affect the quantitfy, quality and availability of Earth resources. Includes examination of the water cycle and how humans use and modify water; fossil-fuel and mineral resources, and renewable energy options. Sustainable versus non-sustainable use and population growth is considered.
GEOL 3030 - Introduction to Hydrogeology
Fall 2018 / Fall 2020 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
Introduces groundwater flow concepts, hydrologic cycle, physical and chemical properties, flow net, hydraulic potential, geologic controls on heterogeneity and anisotropy, aquifers and aquitards in a geologic system, saturated and unsaturated flow, flow to a well, pumping tests, and role of groundwater in geologic processes.
GEOL 5080 - Advanced Hydrogeology and Modeling Concepts
Introduces advanced groundwater flow and modeling concepts, equations for steady state and transient flow, saturated and unsaturated flow, finite difference method, application of modeling in geologic processes, radial flow and aquifer parameters, infiltration and groundwater recharge, model calibration, verification and prediction. Department enforced prerequisite: MATH 2300 or Fortran.
GEOL 5700 - Geological Topics Seminar
Spring 2018 / Fall 2018 / Spring 2019 / Fall 2020 / Spring 2021 / Fall 2021 / Fall 2022
Offers seminar studies in geological subjects of special current interest. Primarily for graduate students, as departmental staff and facilities permit. May be repeated up to 15 total credit hours provided that topics vary.
