Prime Aspects of Groundwater Quality Modelling


Instructor-led online course

This five-module online course will give you a broad knowledge of the main features of FEFLOW for modelling contaminant transport processes within the context of hydrogeology. You will take a deep dive into how to perform numerical groundwater simulations to understand challenging processes associated with groundwater quality covering conservative transport, multi-species transport, kinetic reactions and full-reactive transport.

Affordable and convenient high quality technical training!

Are you a hydrogeologist, geologist, or professional working on groundwater simulations for a consulting company, public authority, university or research institution in the mining, environmental and water resources sector?

Do you have basic knowledge of groundwater systems as well as computer applications?

Have you been introduced to FEFLOW through experience or having followed the self-paced course ‘Getting started with groundwater modelling using FEFLOW’?

Are you prepared to allocate a minimum of two hours of self-study for each module apart from the Introductory Session?

If yes, you can benefit from this online course.

DHI has added bonus course material offering you the opportunity to invest an extra 1-2 hours of self-study per session to master the software!
