ENVS 315


Hydrology is the study of the waters of the earth including water in the atmosphere, on the earth’s surface and underground. In this course we will explore the components of the hydrologic cycle including processes such as precipitation, evaporation, transpiration, infiltration, groundwater flow, surface runoff and stream flow. For each component of the hydrologic cycle we will study the physical processes and explore the methods used to measure or estimate rates for that process. We will use case studies to explore human interactions with hydrologic processes throughout the course.
