Welcome to “Introduction to Hydrogeology”. This course introduces basic principles of hydrogeology that are of relevance to a wide array of problems in environmental science and resource management. Topics such as the hydrologic budget, mechanics of surface and ground water movement, water resource assessment and allocation, causes and abatement of pollution, and consequences of human activities on hydrologic systems are emphasized in the context of their role in evaluating and addressing some of Earth's most pressing environmental issues.

The course is taught via the internet and is available to students enrolled in both on-campus and off-campus programs at ESU. On-campus students should enroll in the course following traditional on-campus enrollment procedures. Off-campus students should enroll through ESU's Distance Education program. On-campus students interested in taking this course should enroll in GO 571A and off-campus students should enroll in GO 571XA, for graduate credit, or GO571ZA, for undergraduate credit. In order to receive university credit for the course, students must be officially enrolled. They will need to be in contact with the instructor to receive instructions for accessing course materials.
