ABOUT THE COURSE
The main objectives of this 3-day course are to understand the following topics:
- General hydrogeology and geochemistry and its impact on both societal and geologically relevant processes. Examples of water supply, groundwater pollution, toxic waste disposal, geothermal resources, fluid induced earthquakes, subsidence, origin of evaporites and origin of dolomite
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Understanding and evaluation of sustainable groundwater resource evaluation, geologic hazards, natural resources and environmental issues related to hydrogeology.
How the geochemistry and hydrogeology in combination explain the origin of evaporites, sabkha deposits, and dolomite
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
