 Advanced Engineering Hydrology(SPRING_2017)

Aims:

Covers the basic processes of the hydrologic cycle and their applications. For each process students learn the basics of how the physical process works and how it varies spatially and temporally and why. Then they learn how each process can be measured, estimated, or modeled.

Syllabus:
