This course addresses fundamental and practical issues of water resources engineering. The increasing demand for sufficient water quantity and quality that is distributed in time and space forces engineers and policy makers to develop more comprehensive, complex, and ambitious plans for environmental and water systems. This course emphasizes understanding, formulating, and approaches of solving problems of water resources engineering. Quantitative overview of the water resources development, water resources problems, impacts of climate variability and global warming on water resources, and the fundamental principles and basic tools to solve these problems will be covered. Topics to be discussed also include introduction to basic concepts of hydrology, GIS (Geographic Information Systems) applications, theory of unit hydrograph, frequency analysis, flood routing through reservoirs and rivers, introduction to rainfall-runoff analyses, and watershed modeling.
