hydrogeology field course
The Hydrogeology Field Course offered by the Department of Geological and Environmental Sciences at Western Michigan University is one of very few hydro-technical programs in the United States and draws in students from around the nation and abroad. The program, first developed in 1987, is directed by Tom Howe and Dr. Matt Reeves. The Hydrogeology Field Course teaches the following skills: aquifer testing, environmental surface geophysics, groundwater sampling and monitoring, HAZWOPER training, remediation and well drilling and installation. Much of the geophysical testing, field work and training for this course is conducted at the Asylum Lake research and training site, which was developed to provide advanced field work and hands-on experience. The six-week course can be taken as a whole or as individual one-week, one-credit modules, although preference is given to those whom enroll in all six weeks.
