Prerequisites
General Prerequisites
Students should be familiar with the basic principles of differential and integral calculus
Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, students will be able: - to understand the basic principles of groundwater flow and properties of different types of aquifers - to identify the boundary conditions of an aquifer - to apply methods for parameter estimation of different types of aquifers under steady and usteady state of flow. - to calculate appropriate well distances under specified hydraulic constraints
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in an international context
