SWES 565 -- Contaminant Transport in Porous Media (3 units)
Description: The transport of contaminants in the subsurface environment. Effects of dispersion, interphase mass transfer, transformation reactions, and porous-media heterogeneity on transport; covers aqueous (dissolved) and multiphase (immiscible liquid, gas) systems.
Prerequisite(s): SWES 570 or HWR 518 or HWR 531
Usually offered: Spring
SWES 566/HWR 566 -- Soil and Groundwater Remediation (3 units)
Description: Principles of characterizing and remediating contaminated soil and groundwater systems, with a focus on case studies.
Prerequisite(s): HWR 531 or equivalent; SWES 564 or equivalent.
Identical to: HWR 566
Usually offered: Fall/Spring
SWES 665 -- Advanced Contaminant Transport (3 units)
Description: The topic of this course is the transport and fate of contaminants in subsurface systems. We will discuss the many factors and processes influencing contaminant transport, and will emphasize the impact of these processes, and representative conceptual/mathematical models. The course is based on critical, detailed analyses of case studies of actual contaminant transport problems. This provides a "real-world" basis, and allows an opportunity to develop skills necessary to evaluate real systems.
Prerequisite(s): SWES 565
