The aim of this module is to provide a fundamental introductory understanding of hydrogeology, covering an introduction to groundwater flow, groundwater chemistry, and groundwater resource development and protection, with an emphasis on quantification.

By the end of the module students should be able to:

  • Understand and quantify basic processes governing the occurrence and flow of groundwater in the geological subsurface;
  • Apply basic hydrogeological analysis to a real locality;
  • Have acquired a foundational expertise to undertake advanced resource and hydrogeology-related courses.


1.5 hour exam on hydrogeology content (100%).
