This course covers fundamentals of subsurface flow and transport, emphasizing the role of groundwater in the hydrologic cycle, the relation of groundwater flow to geologic structure, and the management of contaminated groundwater. The class includes laboratory and computer demonstrations. These videos are from the 2004 class field trip to the Cape Cod, MA USGS experimental site and Waquoit Bay National Estuary; a video of a bangladesh well drilling; four animations showing adsorbtion and solute transport.
