Outline of lecture

This course focuses on the watershed scale hydrology to understand the movement of water through the hydrologic cycle in relation to environmental characteristics of watersheds. The course covers basic principles to hydrology and the mathematical description of underlying hydrologic processes. We also learn specific hydrologic models and their applications. In some sessions we pick up a set of papers and assigned students are required to present the summary of each paper including the objective, concept, methodology and findings. All the students are expected to participate in the discussion.
