Advanced hydrology

The advanced hydrology course will instruct students in the setup of hydrological and hydraulic models using a range of data records, remote sensing imagery and GIS software. The course will be divided into three themes: i) hydrometeorological instrumentation installation, programming and, where necessary, calibration; ii) remote sensing and GIS data analysis in support of hydrological response unit classification, watershed flow routing, and floodplain mapping; iii)  set up of the HEC HMS hydrological and RAS hydraulic models for a case study area in Alberta.

Elements of the course instruction and evaluation might require students to work in a team environment.
