Computational Watershed Hydrology
Students in this class will learn how to access and process commonly used geospatial and temporal data such as the digital elevation model (DEM), land use, soil, streamflow and precipitation using geographic information systems (GIS). After processing, students will learn how to use these data to create hydrologic and hydraulic models such as HEC-HMS, HEC-RAS and SWAT. Students will learn how to interpret model results and present information to convey the role of climate and human factors on watershed hydrology. After completing this course, students should be able to perform hydrologic and hydraulic analysis or modeling in research and professional practice to address issues related to water movement and availability in natural settings.
