Applied Hydrogeology Torquato Nanni
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course provides the student with the knowledge about the geological processes that originated aquifers, the hydrodynamics of aquifers, the water balance, the groundwater chemistry and the hydraulic relations between groundwater and surface water.CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The knowledge gained from the future environmental engineer provide the ability to evaluate the volume of resources stored in aquifers and define rational works for withdrawal of groundwater and preservation of the surface water system. TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
The knowledge on Hydrogeology gives to the future environmental engineer the ability to interact with different hydrogeological specialists in projects for withdrawal of groundwater, management and protection of aquifers and remediation of contaminated sites.
Basic concepts of Hydrogeology and Applied hydrogeology. Methodologies for the analysis of the aquifers. Examples of studies on porous and fissured aquifers. Pumping tests, artificial tracers and hydrodynamic parameters. Hydrological balance and water resources of the aquifers. Management, preservation and protection of aquifers. Wells, springs and water supply.
Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
The assessment is through written with oral discussion. In the written test, students have to deal with the issues related to the theoretical part of Hydrogeology, reading and analysis of hydrogeological maps with recognition sites for withdrawal groundwater and water pollution hazard.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
In examination, students must demonstrate the ability to use independently and properly methodologies and tools related to the Hydrogeological topics. They must also demonstrate capacity of synthesis and at the same time complete exposition of the subject matters of the questions.I
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
During the examinations is assessed the student's ability to answer the questions correctly on the theoretical part of the course, on the interpretation of hydrogeological maps and on the use and protection of groundwater aquifers.
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
The maximum mark, derived from the scores obtained by the test, is equal to thirty points with honors and is assigned to students that demonstrate full autonomy and synthesis in the response. The minimum rating is eighteen and is assigned to students that have sufficient knowledge to set a correct answer.
