Semester: Fall Intended Students: Undergraduates

Credits: 2 Instructor: Zhang Xiang (China)

Course Content:

This course is designed to introduce the basic concepts underlying the science of hydrology and the principles of physical hydrology.

The major contents of the course deal with the elements of hydrological cycle and water balance, and the basic theory about the runoff generation through the land phase of the hydrological cycle. The course is focused on quantitative, conceptually sound, but relatively simple representations of physical hydrologic processes and on approaches to the field measurement of the quantities of water and rates of flow involved in those processes. Students can expect to gain a solid introductory footing in hydrology that is broadly applicable in water resources management.
