|Subject Overview:||In this subject quantitative analyses of physical hydrology are introduced. 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 earth 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, the unsaturated zone and groundwater hydrology|
On successful completion of this subject students should be able to:
