Course Description and Credit Information

This course aims to educate participants about hydrological cycle and hydrological processes and how they relate with landscape. Discussed are the topics of infiltration, evapo-transpiration, and runoff, the fundamental stream processes (i.e., sediment transport, deposition), landscape-level processes, and stream channel morphology.

Further, the course explores the challenges solutions, and benefits of hydrologic processes to the community and the environment as a whole.

Learning Objectives:

1. Describe the hydrologic cycle in relation to landscape attributes.

2. Predict the path of water by infiltration, runoff, and evapotranspiration.

3. Describe fundamental stream processes such as sediment transport and deposition.

4. Describe landscape-level processes that affect hydrology and how they influence stream channel morphology.

5. Describe how issues related to hydrology (e.g., surface runoff, infiltration acid deposition, streambank erosion, groundwater pollution) affect design of conservation practices.
