Assumed knowledge on:

Water 1.


This course is a continuation of Water 1. Where the focus in Water 1 was on 'system description', the focus of this course is more on 'processes'. Main subject is an introduction to physical, chemical and biological processes in groundwater and surface waters. Students are challenged to understand the processes, and also perform basic calculations of (ground) water flow and water quality. During weekly tutorials students will exercise these quantification aspects.
Furthermore integrated water management aspects are dealt with.

Learning outcomes:

After successful completion of this course students are expected to be able to: - identify and explain the basic physical, chemical and biological processes in groundwater and surface waters;
- identify and describe (ground) water management issues;
- interpret and describe basic issues of (ground) water quality, groundwater flow and surface water hydrology;
- quantify physical, biological and chemical processes in groundwater and surface waters;
- apply basic numerical methods to calculate (ground) water flow, compound distribution and transport in water systems.


Prepare and attend lectures and tutorials.


Written examination consisting of multiple choice questions.
