Course Description Prerequisites: Engineering hydrology or the equivalent Spatial/temporal dynamics of the hydrologic cycle and its interactions with landforms and vegetation. Hydroclimatology at regional to planetary scales, focusing on mechanisms of organization and variation of water fluxes as a function of season, location, reservoir (ocean, atmosphere, land), and time scale. Land-atmosphere interaction and the role of vegetation and soil moisture. Topography as an organizing principle for land water fluxes. Geomorphology and the evolution of river networks. Sedimentation, erosion and hill slope hydrology. Dynamics of water movement over land, in rivers and in the subsurface, with an emphasis on modeling interfaces. Integrated models and the scale problem. Emphasis on data-based spatial/temporal modeling and exploration of outstanding theoretical challenges.
