EENG 7717 - Hydrology for EET
Part-time Studies Course
This course provides an introduction to the field of hydrology along with fundamental watershed concepts. Rainfall runoff models cover the rational formula, SCS method, frequency analysis of extreme flows, regional analysis, low-flow analysis, and measurement of snow melt. The hydrometric section includes procedures used to construct hydrographs and hydrometers, methods to determine stage flow and various measures of streamflow.

Upon successful completion, the student will be able to:
Analyze the hydrologic system and its related processes through the use of hydrographs and by applying fundamental watershed concepts.
Discuss the mechanisms of precipitation, snow melt, duration, and frequency relationships.
Use various methodologies for rainfall runoff correlations with respect to small, intermediate and large basin flow analysis.
Solve basic problems to show the effect of snow melt on runoff.
Select the types of equipment used to collect field data for basin flow and precipitation based on the various types of gauging equipment.
Delineate a watershed based on characteristics such as drainage density, pattern, stream order, and stream magnitude.
Interpret the dominant hydrologic processes and flow regimes in British Columbia.
Calculate discharge through a culvert and/or weir using reference flow equations to determine the stage-discharge relationship.
Discuss how a current meter can be used to resolve issues surrounding accuracy of stream discharge.
Calculate stream discharge using the mid-section method and taking into account potential sources of error.
