About the Course

This course presents a watershed-scale survey of the processes through which water moves through the hydrologic cycle, and how watershed characteristics influence these processes. We will also examine how watershed characteristics influence stream and riparian ecosystems, and how they influence water resources for human needs. Additionally, we will use contemporary methods and tools to quantify hydrologic processes, stream ecosystem condition, and water resources; and present case studies that illustrate how these concepts are applied to real-world situations in the southeastern United States and beyond.
