Post-graduate Studies in Hydrogeology of Fractured Rock

Graduate students at the Masters or PhD level are sought for participation in research conducted in any one of the following areas:

  • Modeling of the development of bio-barriers in fracture networks
  • Field tracer studies of solute transport in discrete fractures and fracture networks
  • Diffusion of semi-volatile gasoline compounds through intact rock
  • Model development and field application of new hydraulic testing methods for the characterization of fractured rock
  • Geostatistical analysis of large hydraulic testing data sets
