Surface Water Hydrology

This course is designed to provide an introduction to surface water hydrology. We will explore surface water hydrological processes, focusing on how precipitation and snowmelt become streamflow, evapotranspiration, and groundwater. This course will provide students with a strong understanding of how water moves across Earth’s surface. Students will gain an in-depth knowledge of watershed hydrology. Students will be able to apply hydrologic principles in considering management of water resources to achieve social objectives. Also offered as ERTH 442.
