This course presents information about the hydrological cycle and hydrological processes and how they
relate to the larger regional environment. Discussed are the topics of infiltration, evapotranspiration,
and runoff, the fundamental stream processes (i.e., sediment transport, deposition), landscape-level
processes, and stream channel morphology.
Further, the course explores the challenges solutions, and benefits of hydrologic processes to the
community and the environment as a whole.
Water / Stormwater Management
Health, Safety and Welfare
1. Describe the hydrologic cycle in relation to landscape attributes.
2. Predict the path of water by infiltration, runoff, and evapotranspiration.
3. Describe fundamental stream processes such as sediment transport and deposition.
4. Describe landscape-level processes that affect hydrology and how they influence stream channel
5. Describe how issues related to hydrology (e.g., surface runoff, infiltration acid deposition, streambank
erosion, groundwater pollution) affect design of conservation practices.
