About this Unit
Surface water hydrology covers the principles of hydrology as it pertains to surface water component of the hydrologic cycle. The principal focus is on the relationship between rainfall and surface runoff. The extent of flooding resulting from storm events will be evaluated through floodplain delineation process. Successful completion of this unit provides the competencies required to propose sustainable engineering solutions to potential adverse impacts of land-use changes. This unit builds on the hydraulic concepts acquired from the units completed earlier.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Laptop with M/S Excel installed – use WSU library borrowing facility, if required.
