Distance students will need a good quality internet connection and computer access, and may require a computer with a camera and/or microphone headset for FLO Live or SKYPE interaction with the topic coordinator.
This topic offers the knowledge needed to investigate the dynamics of groundwater flow in aquifers. The topic is delivered in four parts: Part 1 Groundwater and the hydrologic cycle - which covers the movement of water in the earth; Part 2 Groundwater flow to wells - which covers groundwater extraction situations and aquifer testing through pump tests; Part 3 Groundwater investigation techniques - which covers laboratory techniques and the fundamentals of groundwater investigation; and Part 4 which covers issues in Australia relating to groundwater.
This topic aims to instil in students' knowledge and an appreciation of the storage and transport of groundwater, and its importance as a global water resource and integral part of the hydrologic cycle.
