Hydrogeology class in the field

Hydrogeology students discuss their measurements

In our small but enthusiastic hydrogeology class, we’ve installed piezometers, measured groundwater levels and calculated flow directions, and conducted slug tests in a monitoring well hidden away in a wooded area on campus. We also had a field trip to the Langtree Peninsula Research Station, where hydrogeologists Andrew Pitner and Joju Abraham explained some of their ongoing projects and demonstrated water quality sampling techniques.

Our Langtree field trip took place on the coldest day of the year. Here students warm up by the generator while we wait for water quality indicators to stabilize.
