About the course

This course will intro­duce the prac­tice of sur­face water hydrol­o­gy as water plays a role in the devel­op­ment of most human activ­i­ties. Var­i­ous land phase hydro­log­ic process­es will be described. Meth­ods of devel­op­ment of inten­si­ty-dura­tion-fre­quen­cy curves for rain­fall, esti­ma­tion of rain­fall at ungauged loca­tions, stream flow mea­sure­ment meth­ods, flood fre­quen­cy analy­sis, region­al fre­quen­cy analy­sis for esti­mat­ing stream flows at ungauged loca­tions and risk assess­ment in hydro­log­ic design will be dis­cussed. Approx­i­mate meth­ods for esti­mat­ing storm water stor­age require­ments for urban devel­op­ment and var­i­ous hydro­log­ic and hydraulic modes used in the pro­fes­sion­al domain will be intro­duced. Based cal­cu­la­tions with­in var­i­ous hydro­log­ic pro­ce­dures as required for address­ing sur­face water hydrol­o­gy issues will also be covered.
