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.
