Course Details

This course presents the basic concepts and techniques needed for watershed analysis and drainage facility design. Basic observation and estimation skills are developed through worksheets, mapwork and a small field project. Fundamental concepts include rainfall intensity, runoff, catchment area, streamflow, infiltration, mass balance, snowmelt, rainfall frequency, and the hydrologic cycle. The streamflow estimation procedures presented are the rational method and the unit hydrograph.
