Hydrogeology over the groundwater table: field measurements, data management and modelling in the vadose zone

Before the Flowpath Conference, the Early Career hydrogeologists of the ECHN-Italy group will deliver a practical course on the hydrogeology of the vadose zone.

The course will take place on Monday 10th June and Tuesday 11th June. The program includes field activities at an equipped monitoring site and face-to-face lectures at the premises of the Department of Earth Sciences “A. Desio” of the University of Milan.

The course focuses on field data collection, management, processing, and application of data analytics tools for modelling the water budget in the unsaturated zone and for generating automated reports.

The course is addressed to MSc and PhD students, post-docs, early career hydrogeologists, freelances and technicians of the water sector, with the aim of providing useful tools to enhance data collection and processing. The course requires a basic knowledge of hydrogeology. The course will be held in Italian.
