Synopsis of Course: A comprehensive introduction for science, engineering and mathematics students to all aspects of the physical hydrology of precipitation, surface runoff and groundwater flow. Three weekly lecture/discussion sessions will emphasize the quantitative elements of predictive physical models, drawing on the student's background in vector calculus, differential equations and Fourier theory. Extensive class discussion will assess the practical application of specific models. Group collaboration encouraged. One recitation period/week. Labs. In-class optional exercises. No exams. Prerequisites: AM 34, Physics 47, EN 51 (or equivalent background in vector differential equations).
