Applied Hydrogeology in Alberta


The course will introduce the practice of hydrogeology as generally applied in Alberta. Three areas of hydrogeology will be explored, with emphasis on conditions in Alberta. These areas include:(1) Hydrogeological Site Assessment, (2) Groundwater Resource Evaluation and Management, and (3) Groundwater Monitoring. Topics will include principles and practices of contaminated site assessment, regulatory considerations, conceptual models, environmental risk management, and groundwater remediation. Methods of characterizing regional baseline hydrogeology, groundwater resource quantity and quality, and groundwater vulnerability will be covered, along with discussion of issues such as groundwater modelling, watershed management, groundwater-surface water interaction, and implications of climate change. Also considered will be the key elements of designing an effective groundwater monitoring program both on a local and a regional scale.
