UG Coursework Unit
Faculty & College
To succeed in this unit, you will need a good working knowledge of first-year level chemistry and geology, as well as a basic understanding of the hydrologic cycle. Some understanding of fluid mechanics would also be beneficial.
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
describe the properties of groundwater and its relationship with other parts of the hydrologic cycle
use different types of input data to characterise the type, number and nature of aquifer systems
evaluate and apply appropriate field and laboratory techniques to analyse and interpret the hydraulics, geophysics and geochemistry of groundwater systems
construct and interpret numerical models to simulate water movement and solute transport in groundwater systems
evaluate natural and anthropogenic impacts on sustainability of groundwater resources and propose appropriate management strategies.
