Geochemistry for Groundwater Systems

Course code: USGS-OED-GW3021
Course title: Geochemistry for Groundwater Systems
Description: The geochemical model PHREEQC will be used to investigate common geochemical reactions in groundwater systems. The course will use numerous exercises and applications of PHREEQC to teach program capabilities, discuss data needs, and demonstrate interpretation of geochemical data. The format for each day will be a series of periods of instruction alternating with computer sessions and discussions. Through extensive application of the program to several groundwater environments, participants will learn the most common geochemical processes and will develop modeling skills to apply to groundwater investigations.
Target Audience:
This is an advanced course on geochemistry of ground-water and geochemical modeling. It is intended for hydrologists with projects that involve major-element, trace-metal, inorganic contaminant, nutrient, or radionuclide chemistry. Participants should be familiar with basic chemical principles and mineralogy and have taken Aquatic Chemistry (QW2032) or have equivalent experience.
Delivery method: ILT
Instructional hours: 36
