Interested in learning and quantifying water and chemical transport through soil and unsaturated porous media? Sign up for the 2018 Summer A Course ABE 6265: Vadose Zone Water & Solute Transport Modeling Instructional Objectives: * Understanding fundamentals of soil hydrology: flow, solute transport, and water quality. * Step-by-step development and testing of numerical code for flow and solute transport through the vadose zone. * Exploring the oportunities of functional/simplified vs. numerical approaches for modeling water and solute transport in the unsaturated Vadose Zone. * Use of advanced tools for formal model calibration and evaluation. * Analysis of prediction uncertainty and global sensitivity analysis of models. * Knowledge of High Performance Computing (HPC) throughput simulation tools for global sensitivity and uncertainty analysis of models. * Application to student's own research area.
