Students apply prior knowledge and knowledge gained in this course to investigate water resources, hydrologic cycle, water use, and water budget components in watershed systems. Students will study the laws governing the occurrence and movement of water flux. Students will characterize the hydrological conditions, interpret and divide the flow system. This course covers the hydrologic cycle and the water budget components such as precipitation, infiltration, evaporation, transpiration, and surface runoff. In addition, this course covers the hydrological processes of groundwater flow, open-channel flow, streamflow hydrograph analysis, streamflow routing, water supply and sewerage, and the design of water distribution systems.
