Title: Applied Hydrology, EXERM 4256, Faculty of Extension, University of Alberta

Description: This course will introduce the practice of surface water hydrology as water plays a role in the development of most human activities. Various land phase hydrologic processes will be described. Methods of development of intensity-duration-frequency curves for rainfall, estimation of rainfall at ungauged locations, stream flow measurement methods, flood frequency analysis, regional frequency analysis for estimating stream flows at ungauged locations and risk assessment in hydrologic design will be discussed. Approximate methods for estimating storm water storage requirements for urban development and various hydrologic and hydraulic modes used in the professional domain will be introduced. Based calculations within various hydrologic procedures as required for addressing surface water hydrology issues will also be covered. Completion of EXERM 4250, EXERM 4252 and EXERM 4307 is strongly recommended.
