Course Outcomes

1(p) Hydrologic Cycle

1(p). Understand and apply climatological principles relating to the hydrologic cycle and its occurrence and interaction with the biosphere of the earth.

2(p) Precipitation & Runoff

2(p). Understand and solve problems for precipitation/runoff situations; including generation of the flow rates at desired points in a watershed.

3(c) Design & Hydrographs

3(c). Design and make calculations of flowrate hydrographs, reservoir storage, and water demand relationships in a stream.

4(p) Groundwater

4(p). Understand and be able to make calculations related to groundwater flow, well flow analysis and design, and drainage of saturated soils.

5(l) Statistical Methods

5(l). Design and apply statistical methods to generate hydrologic intensity and frequency distributions.
