Groundwater modelling is nowadays indispensable for modern planning and management of groundwater resources in sustainable manner.
To exploit, protect and manage groundwater resources in a sound manner requires a thorough understanding of groundwater flow and transport processes and quantification of these processes in time and space. This is typically done by groundwater modelling. Groundwater modelling is nowadays indispensable for modern planning and management of groundwater resources in sustainable manner.
For the reliable setup of groundwater model, good understanding of the hydrogeological system and data describing its spatio-temporal characteristic are needed. This can be best achieved by data acquisition based on the combination of EO (Earth Observation), geophysical remote sensing techniques for spatial assessment as well as hydrological monitoring for temporal assessment. Various techniques of such data acquisition and data integration in groundwater models will be discussed. Afterwards model calibration will be carried out using forward and inverse methods. The calibrated models will be finally used to show their applicability in groundwater management such as for example determination of borehole safe yield, design of wellhead protection zone, remedial of contamination etc.
Groundwater flow and modelling, Pump test analysis, MODFLOW concepts, spatial and temporal data acquisition for MODFLOW based modelling, Optimization techniques, Unsaturated flow modelling.
Understand different hydrogeological modelling concepts; develop practical skills; applying different integration techniques, calibrating models and applying them for groundwater management.
