|Subject Overview:||This is a companion subject to Hydrological Processes 2. At the conclusion of this subject students should be capable of undertaking quantitative analyses of physical processes related to surface hydrology. Emphasis will be placed on the application of fundamental principles of mathematics and physics to the conceptualisation and analysis of the complex interactions that are the hallmark of environmental systems. Students should also be able to build computer models of these interactions and interpret the output from such models. Topics covered include global water, energy and carbon cycles, precipitation, evapotranspiration, interaction between surface and subsurface water, runoff processes, hydrological modelling and water quality|
|Objectives:||At the end of this subjects students should be able to: |
|Assessment:||One 3-hour end of semester examination (70%) and three assignments (24%) totalling less than 2,000 words and two 30 minute tests (6%) throughout the semester.|
