Learning outcomes:

Knowledge and understanding of the basic hydrogeologic features, processes and basic laws of groundwater movement.
Ability to assess the type of aquifer and flow based on data analysis of drilling and test pumping, and the ability to choose the appropriate method for calculating hydrogeological parameters.
Ability to apply the calculated values of hydrogeological parameters for assessing the hydrogeological characteristics of the aquifer and the available groundwater quantities.
Ability to assess the validity of the well performance and optimal flow rates based on the calculated values of the well parameters
Ability to assess the conductivity and storage capacity of karst aquifer based on the analysis of the hydrograph recession.
