There is focus on groundwater modelling for resource studies, at the regional level and for analysis of pumped wells. There are also aspects of surface water application, including hydro power studies. Hazard aspects will include the analysis of floods and droughts, and impacts on water resources by agriculture and industry. Guest lecturers will provide case studies of water resource management in industry and regional councils. There will be a one-day field trip to the Tongariro power scheme as a case study of a water-collecting hydro power system.
