You will receive an overview of hydrology in this course, as well as learn about both the pure and applied uses of it. A special emphasis on the interfaces between hydrology and other environmental sciences will be presented, focusing on surface water and groundwater processes, and watershed responses.
Hydrologic science has both basic and applied aspects. Basic or pure hydrology relates to questions about the role of water in natural processes, such as shaping the surface of the Earth, while applied hydrology relates to using scientific knowledge as the basis for making informed decisions concerning water allocation and protection of natural resources.
Examples used in class include acid mine drainage remediation, impacts of unconventional natural gas extraction on or near surface waters, and impacts of climate change.
