Eung Seok Lee

Course Description

Contaminant Hydrogeology will provide students with the basic concepts and tools to understand problems of contamination in groundwater. With a focus on Asia, the course will examine the most commonly encountered contaminants, pathways to aquifers and the commonly associated human health problems. The course will build an understanding the key processes involved in contaminant migration through simple examples and calculations. Exercises and case studies will help focus learning on the most important concepts. By the end of the course, students can expect to have gained a good understanding of the topic, which helps to integrate theory and practice.

Course Description

This short course covers the development of integrated hydrologic models using HydroGeoSphere (HGS). The HGS model is a three- dimensional groundwater-surface water flow and contaminant transport model and has been used in various fields from hydrologic studies to engineering applications. Participants will learn how to apply HGS to their own research or industrial projects through a combination of presentations and hand-on practices. The topics covered include: theoretical background of groundwater- surface water flow and contaminant transport (mathematical formulation and numerical approaches); hands-on simulation exercises (data preparation, mesh generation, HGS operation, calibration, visualization, and result interpretation); cost-effective computing skills (parallel computing utilities, characteristics of nonlinear problems, and effective mesh generation).

Course Description

The offered short course includes an introduction to needed modern Hydrogeology techniques to define, manage and control groundwater and environmentally related issues. As groundwater is a major source in the world and presents a particular concern in arid and semi-arid regions, the course includes basic tools, which introduce the Flow Systems methodology. Actual environmental issues are presented as a key to understand groundwater flow functioning. This relative modern conception that groundwater circulates in different paths in 3D provides with alternative tools to define how groundwater issues may be defined and controlled. Any reliable groundwater functioning model should match all of the natural environment components (as soil type, vegetation, water chemistry, isotope content, lithology, hydraulics, basement rock position, etc). The identification and usage of direct and indirect indicators of the flow systems are discussed in the course using a wide system view. Practical applications of the flow systems include an efficient groundwater extraction and an integrated water management practice. The main philosophy of the course is twofold: i) provide participants with basic, simple and practical tools to be applied on obtainable data during any related hydrogeological field- work, and ii) to understand the flow system components prior to a modelling analysis. The participant will be conversant with basic information to be used to define an agreeable conceptual groundwater and surface flow model
