Course: Introduction to Applied Environmental Geochemistry and Geochemical Modeling

University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada.

Presented by:

  • Dr. Robert Donahue, P.Eng., Applied Environmental Geochemistry Research Facility University of Alberta
  • Dr. John Mahoney, MWH Americas, Inc. Steamboat Springs, CO
  • Dr. Terry Fonstad, P.Eng, Department of Agriculture and Bio-resource Engineering University of Saskatchewan

Course Description
An understanding of geochemical principles is essential to the cost effective management of groundwater and waste management problems. The course will provide the geo-science practitioner with the tools to characterize groundwater systems and predict their response to contaminants loading or remediation efforts. The material is presented through examples of basic mineral-water-atmospheric gas interactions and through case studies of contaminated sites, mine waste management, CO2 sequestration and intensive livestock operations. The course material is delivered though lectures and hands on geochemical modeling designed to reinforce geochemical concepts and provide analytical tools for the working professional.
