iGW-I is an interactive GroundWater Book and I stands from the level I- i.e., the starting level for a full groundwater course.
The development of this book is based on the wonderful works of the JUPYTER Book Team
The book/site in nutshell
The site provides an interactive JUPYTER book with contents typical of a introductory groundwater course taught at higher UG level or the early PG level at universities.
The contents/structure provided here are mostly from those developed and lectured by Prof. Rudolf Liedl at TU Dresden.
The contents are geared towards learning through computing. The computing part is entirely based on Python programming language. Previous programming/coding experiences is not required or expected to gain from the provided contents.
The contents of the book are divided into:
- Lecture Parts
- Tutorial Parts
- Self-learning tools
- Question bank
The lecture parts are combination of texts and simpler numerical examples. Only minimum Python codes are available on this part. The tutorial are mostly numerical examples. This aims at teaching also the basic of Python coding. The focus remains on illustrating lecture contents. Self-learning tools are interactive tools that supports the lecture and tutorial components and enhances understanding. The codes of the tools can require higher knowledge in Python programming. Therefore, codes are hidden.
