This course provides an overview of water on the planet and its interaction with geologic materials. The first part of the course describes surface water processes, including precipitation, evaporation, snow hydrology, and runoff processes. The second part of the course follows water as it moves to the subsurface as soil water and ground water. Lecture topics include properties of aquifers, principals of groundwater flow, regional groundwater flow, wells, basin development, and water quality management.
