GEOL 584 Hydrologic Basin Analysis
Statistical, analytical, and experimental approaches to watershed management, with particular emphasis on measurement of hydrologic variables in the field, probability of hydrologic events, the water balance, flood prediction, water-supply analysis, groundwater monitoring strategies, water treatment, and contaminant tracking and remediation. Field work includes flow measurement of surface streams. A term paper provides experience in the preparation of consultant-level reports that deal with typical hydrologic problems requiring application of principles from the class.
