This exercise allows students to quantify advection and dispersion of an environmentally-friendly dye as it floats down a local stream. Digital images of the resulting plume are captured using a "remote aerial tramway" setup by the instructor. Students develop a conceptual model of contaminant transport, test it, then quantify results using a variety of spatial and temporal methods. By the end of the exercise, students should have an appreciation for the complexity of contaminant transport, and appreciate the challenges hydrogeologists face as they monitor plumes in the subsurface.
