EA5090 - Applied Hydrology
|Student Contribution Band:
||College of Science and Engineering
The subject will present advanced concepts and techniques in surface and groundwater
hydrology. It will focus on today's major water resources issues in Australia and
the rest of the World. It is intended to provide the students with an advanced understanding
of the concepts and techniques necessary to identify, quantify, map and monitor the
natural hydrological processes and assess the impact of activities. Case studies will
be taken across a wide spectrum of space and time scales from large basins in Australia
(eg Murray Darling) and the rest of the World (eg Amazon) to small local catchments.
Special topics include dryland salinity, the impact of land use and climate change,
water quality and pollution, recharge of aquifers, irrigation water, water resources
development and environmental protection.
- to provide students with an advanced understanding of hydrological processes, methods
for hydrological analysis and design as well as water quantity and availability issues;
- to engage students with quantitative methods that are used to measure natural hydrologic
- to provide students with a better understanding of the general earth and environmental
sciences from a hydrological perspective;
- to equip students with a wide range of skills encountered in hydrological practice.
