This course introduces applied groundwater modelling. The course is targeted at students interested iin learning how to formulate and program their own 2D groundwater model to simulate advective and solute transport in the saturated zone. This course tries to teach groundwater modelling in an easy format that is accessible to everyone no matter your budget. Only free software is used, and a friendly introduction to programming in the context of groundwater modelling is given. Hence, most engineering students with a background of math and hydraulics will be able to complete this course. At the end of this course, the participants are able to setup their own groundwater model to a given location.

Example of a 3D numerical groundwater model.

Groundwater hydrologists are often faced with questions about groundwater flow systems and tasked to help with the management of groundwater resources. Among these tasks and questions, the most typical examples are outlines below [Anderson, 2015]

*How will pumping of drinking water affect the natural surrounding water bodies?**How will climate effects affect the groundwater resources?**What is the capture area of a drinking water well?**How long will it take before contaminants of a leakage to the groundwater cna be traced in a drinking water well?**Who is at fault for my flooded basement?*
