Advanced Surface Hydrology
An advanced course of surface water hydrology
teaching the main processes involved in water flow above the surface,
measurement techniques of relevant data and models of runoff estimation. The
course includes the following topics: precipitation, infiltration, hill slope
hydrology, stream flow, watershed hydrology.
The purpose of this course is to get exposure in the
field of hydrology.
By the end of this course, the student should be able to:
Define the processes involved in water
flow above the surface, measurement techniques and models of runoff estimation.
A student completing the
course is expected to:
Describe the main
processes involved in surface water flow
techniques for relevant data - advantages and disadvantages
mathematical equations form the physical base of surface water flow
hydrological variables using models
Analyze a collection
of published scientific papers on extreme flash flood events
