Groundwater Flow in Drainage Basins
The aim of the course is to acquaint the student with the principles, knowledge, methods, and techniques needed to investigate, understand, and exploit for utilitarian purposes the properties, controlling factors, and manifestations of regional groundwater flow in drainage basins of different orders of magnitude. This knowledge and ability of exploitation is of economic and environmental consequence because gravitational systems of groundwater flow may penetrate several kilometers deep below the surface of the Earth’s terrestrial areas from which zone most of man's subsurface water-needs are satisfied. In addition, a wide range of economically important natural processes occur at or below the land surface that are generated or affected by gravity-driven flow systems.
