This course introduces groundwater modeling theory and practice, with emphasis on model construction, simulation, as well as calibration, and using state-of-the-art modeling tools. Students learn basic concepts and governing equations of fluid flow in porous media, computational algorithms of solving the equations, and mathematical methods of inverse modeling. Essential statistics of evaluating quality of model simulations is introduced and examples of synthetic cases and real-world applications are used. Prerequisite: ISC 5226.
