Hydrology (HYDR)

HYDR 404 (s) Special Topics

Credit arranged.

HYDR 409 Quantitative Hydrogeology

3 credits
Joint-listed with HYDR 509
A rigorous introduction to the description of flow in porous media; the basic equations of potential flow theory as they relate to ground water problems, with application to common engineering problems encountered by hydrogeologists and engineers; dimensional analysis, properties assignment, and heterogeneous systems. For graduate credit additional reading, presentations, and/or written reports of assigned literature required.
Prereq: MATH 275, STAT 251 or STAT 301.

HYDR 412 Environmental Hydrogeology

3 credits
Joint-listed with HYDR 512
Methods of hydrogeologic site characterization for the delineation of environmental problems. For graduate credit, students are required to complete an additional independent research paper.
Prereq: GEOL 309.

HYDR 414 Ground Water-Surface Water Interactions

3 credits
Joint-listed with HYDR 514
Physical and chemical ramifications of interactions between ground water flow systems and surface water bodies. Particular emphasis will be placed on water supply and surface water/ground water contamination issues. Graduate credit requires completion of an additional, separate research paper on a selected topic. (Alt/yrs)
Prereq: GEOL 309 or HYDR 409.

HYDR 496 Hydrogeology Senior Thesis

3 credits
Completion of original research and report. Course is taken over two semesters; first semester is graded IP until completion of second semester.
Prereq: GEOL 309 or HYDR 409/HYDR 509 and GEOL 410.

Graduate credit requires completion of an additional, separate research paper on a selected topic. (Alt/yrs)
Prereq: GEOL 309 or HYDR 409.

HYDR 568 Aquifer Test Design and Analysis

3 credits
Analysis of single and multiple well aquifer tests in a range of hydrogeologic environments. Additional projects/assignments required for graduate credit.

HYDR 576 Fundamentals of Modeling Hydrogeologic Systems

3 credits
Development and application of models representing physical systems, with particular emphasis on ground water flow. Development and solution of the basic equations of potential flow will be covered, along with their assumptions and limitations. Properties assignment, parameter sensitivity, and dimensional analysis will also be discussed. The course will emphasize when modeling is appropriate, how to design a model, and how properties should be selected to achieve meaningful results. Cooperative: open to WSU degree-seeking students.
Prereq: MATH 275 or Permission.
