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. Inclass optional
exercises. No exams. Prerequisites: AM 34, Physics
47, EN 51 (or equivalent background in vector differential equations).
