Description

WHY IS THIS COURSE IMPORTANT?
This three-day course will review and provide participants with handson experience in a selection of common and novel techniques used to monitor and characterise groundwater systems and surface water–groundwater interactions. Short presentations and reading material will provide a theoretical background, after which the techniques will be applied in a series of informative, practical field trips.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
The field methods school is a practical course intended for water industry professionals including field technicians, NRM boards, water utility operators, mining sector staff, ecologists, hydrographers, compliance
officers, hydrogeologists and hydrologists who wish to further develop their fieldwork skills. It assumes a low level of prior technical groundwaterknowledge and will suit all backgrounds and interests.

Lectures, demonstrations and tutorials are given by leading groundwater professionals. Our presenters are experienced hydrogeologists and specialists in both public and private practice, from industry, universities
and research agencies and includes:

Dr Glenn Harrington,
