WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Hydrogeologists, environmental scientists, groundwater consultants, engineers, project managers, and regulatory/compliance officers in the public and private sectors will find this course valuable.

WHAT WILL THE COURSE COVER?
This course provides introductory training in aqueous chemistry, and the application of hydrochemical and isotope tracers for evaluation of groundwater systems (e.g. water–rock interactions, recharge rates, flow directions, inter-aquifer mixing, water quality, etc).
This specialist course will cover:
-up-to-date techniques for sampling and investigating groundwater quality and evolution
-national and international experiences using examples of regional aquifer systems in Australia and across the world
-how to incorporate hydrochemical and environmental tracer data into conceptual models of groundwater systems
-the power of groundwater dating techniques and how they can inform numerical models
