NGWA Slates Fractured Rock Settings Short Course

The National Ground Water Association is offering a course titled, "Isotopic and Hydrogeological Characterization of Fractured Rock Settings" Aug. 17-18 in Columbus, Ohio.

According to a July 6 press release, this intermediate-level course focuses on understanding the hydrology of coupled groundwater/surface water systems in fractured rock settings using a watershed approach.

The course—suited to geologists, hydrologists, engineers, project managers, environmental professionals involved in risk assessment and remediation, attorneys, and regulatory personnel—will provide an evaluation of current approaches to understanding hydrologic systems in fractured rock. New approaches will be addressed that have been underutilized to date, including stable and radiogenic isotopes, end member mixing models, groundwater and surface water tracing techniques using introduced tracers, hydrologic assessment of watersheds, and hydrogeologic mapping.

This course will be taught by Mark Williams, Ph.D., a research fellow at the Institute of Artic and Alpine Research, co-associate director of the Undergraduate Academy, and associate professor of geography at the University of Colorado, and Michael Wireman, Ph.D., a hydrogeologist currently employed by the U.S. EPA in Denver, Colo.
