Groundwater and surface-water relations; theory of aquifer tests; flow nets; head distribution by graphical, analytical, and digital models; groundwater contamination. Specific topics include chemistry of groundwater, exploration programs, aquifer tests, computer solutions, and field trips to areas of geo-hydrologic interest. An engineering design report with analysis and results is required.

Prerequisites: GEOL 201  or GEOE 221/221L , and MATH 125  
Corequisites: GEOE 475L/575L
