This course provides an introduction to the concepts relating to the nature and sources of environmental contaminants in the subsurface, the role of groundwater and soil water in mobilizing and spreading contamination, the processes that control distribution and fate of subsurface contamination, the accepted methods of investigating and analyzing contamination, and the analytical techniques that can be employed to model contaminant fate and transport in the subsurface. The course also considers surface water contamination caused by contamination in the groundwater. Computer laboratories of groundwater model simulations and solute transport solutions are used.
