Short Course on Hydrogeology II – Groundwater Modeling and Application

The second short course on hydrogeology, Groundwater modeling and application, was held at the Groundwater Research Center (Khon Kaen University, Thailand) during the period between 4 and 8 November 2013, for nine participants representing five agencies from Lao PDR: Natural Resources and Environmental Institute (three people); Department of Water Resources (one person); Department of Irrigation (one person); Water Resources Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering, National University of Laos (three persons); and Faculty of Environmental Sciences, National University of Laos (one person).

The main objectives of the short course were to introduce the participants to the theory behind groundwater modeling using MODFLOW Flex; to provide several examples of hands-on exercises with developing the Visual MODFLOW model; and to introduce groundwater management using numerical modeling techniques with case studies.

The main outputs of this short course included the initiation and encouragement of basic knowledge of groundwater modeling and application for the participants; compilation of technical material such as lecture notes and essential articles; preparation of potential teamwork for future groundwater development projects in Lao PDR; and the establishment of new knowledge and new networks.

The short course was conducted by a team from the Groundwater Research Center, Faculty of Technology, Khon Kaen University, Thailand.
