This program is designed for the non-scientist and will provide students with a basic understanding of geology, hydrogeology, and environmental chemistry. You will also learn how to use this information when evaluating environmental conditions at your site or property.
- Geological discussions will cover earth processes, rock and mineral identification, sediments, soils, and man-made fill materials.
- Hydrogeology discussions will cover the water cycle, ground water flow/movement, well construction methods, and ground water supply development and protection.
- Chemistry discussions will cover natural ground water chemistry, common pollutants, the migration of contaminants through soil and ground water, sampling techniques, analytical methods, and the interpretation of laboratory data.
