**be able to summarize the major canons of the engineering code of ethics****for any hydrologic system Or subset of such system: recognize the components of the water budget, estimate their magnitude, and balance the budget****manipulate relationships between porosity (total & effective) - specific yield - specific retention - capillarity - storage coefficient AND estimate these items from material descriptions****manipulate hydraulic conductivity units****estimate effective hydraulic conductivity of a heterogeneous material****identify situations in which Darcy’s law is valid****be able to identify the values for terms of Darcy’s law in any setting and calculate any term once the others have been determined****determine the value of hydraulic head in simple systems and relate this head to pressure****interpret head distribution to identify ground-water flow patterns****recognize what a given head measurement represents and know if it is appropriate for use in the analysis at hand****know how to set up analytical solutions to the flow equations to represent a particular problem and calculate heads and flows****be able to draw and interpret flow nets, and use them to evaluate pressure conditions and estimate volumetric flow through the system****be able to construct a "natural" flow net from field head data****be able to interpret ground-water flow conditions (recharge/discharge areas & flow patterns)****use a flow net constructed from field head measurements to interpret conditions in a flow system (including multiple interpretations for non-unique situations)****determine the volume of water released from storage for a given head change in confined and unconfined units****understand the basis for the ground-water flow equations and the significance of simple boundary conditions including: constant head, no-flow, constant flux and phreatic surface**
