Groundwater

Groundwater Schedule for 2019

Groundwater is the world’s most abundant and extracted natural resource, making up around 98% of fresh water on earth (excluding polar ice). More than half of the total groundwater withdrawn globally is used for agriculture, highlighting the importance of sustainably managing groundwater for global food production.

 

Online Course Series – MODFLOW

MODFLOW is a free software that allows users to model the groundwater flow. Developed by the U.S. Geological Survey, the program is used by hydrogeologists to simulate the flow of groundwater through aquifers.

The MODFLOW series consists of a free webinar and 3 instructor-led courses (two 2-hour sessions over two weeks).
