New NGWA short course, ‘Geohazards and the Role of Groundwater and Surface Water,’ to take place this March

“Geohazards and the Role of Groundwater and Surface Water,” a short course offering from the National Ground Water Association, is scheduled to take place in Columbus, Ohio, March 26-28. This new course presents an overview of surface water and groundwater movement, its impact on landslides of various kinds, and its reaction in soils under conditions of seismic shaking.

Case studies that will be presented include the Silverado Canyon rockfall, Rancho Palos Verdes — litigation and landslides, and Northridge and Mexico’s Easter earthquakes.

Attendees of this course will learn about:

Basics of water and groundwater presence in geologic environments particularly prone to landslides, debris flows, and liquefaction
Calculating hazard potential and determining parameters for design
Detailed assessments of past landslides, debris flow, and liquefaction events, and their costs.

Course instructors Dr. John Foster and Dr. W. Richard Laton are affiliated with the Department of Geological Sciences at the University of California, Fullerton.
