The course activity includes three aspects: Class discussion. Discussion centers on the Darcy law and the Dracy-Gersevanov law, including their main physical difference and applications to aquifer mechanics; Lab experiments. Lab work focuses on the data collection and interpretation of Lab results from conductivity experiments for aquifer sedimentary material. Quantitative skill is emphasized and embedded in data analyzing, figure plotting, graph interpreting and theory understanding using MS Excel; Field trips. Field trips allow students to collect data in situ, including aquifer parameters and pumping parameters. Note: an optional course activity is available to student to evaluate the geological hazard at a large scale (e.g., city subsidence) as independent study through web search and study using GPS or InSAR. The activity should be quantitative using Excel.
