Hydrology National Taiwan University
Hydrology is the study of the earth's waters - their movement, distribution, and other relative qualitative and quantitative issues. The objective of this course is to introduce the student to 1) Principles and processes governing the movement of water through the hydrologic cycle, including atmospheric moisture flow, surface runoff, infiltration, river routing and groundwater flow; and 2) The quantitative description of hydrologic characteristics, including, hydrologic measurement, hydrologic statistics, and frequency analysis techniques applied to problems of engineering hydrologic design
Students are expected to understand
1. The qualitative and quantitative description of hydrologic cycle
2. Infiltration process
3. Surface runoff process
4. Watershed precipitation runoff process
5. Channel routing
6. Introduction of groundwater
7. Hydrologic statistic and frequency analysis
*Majors-only (including minor and double major students).
