The central theme of Hydrology is that water moves and recycles throughout the Earth through different pathways and at different rates. The most vivid image of this is in the evaporation of water from the oceans forming clouds. These clouds drift over the land and produce rain. The rainwater distributes into lakes, rivers, or aquifers. The water in lakes, rivers, and aquifers, then either evaporates back to the atmosphere or eventually flows back to the ocean, completing a cycle. The importance of hydrology is increasing because of the global growth of water needs and increasing water scarcity. There is greater risk and unreliability in water resources management. The basic task of a hydrology is water resources management. This course determines the water balance of region, designing riparian restoration projects, mitigating and predicting flood, landslide and drought risk, designing irrigation schemes and managing agricultural productivity. Part of the module is catastrophe modeling, providing drinking water, designing dams for water supply or hydroelectric power generation, designing bridges, designing sewers and urban drainage system, analyzing the impacts of antecedent moisture on sanitary sewer systems and predicting geomorphological changes, such as erosion or sedimentation. Another major part is assessing the impacts of natural and anthropogenic environmental changes on water resources, assessing contaminant transport risk and establishing environmental policy guidelines.
