Water has a role in the development of most human activities. This course will introduce the practice of surface water hydrology as generally applied in Alberta. 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 will be discussed. Various hydrologic and hydraulic modes that are used in the professional domain will be introduced. Upon completion of course, the students will have a general knowledge of various hydrologic processes that need be identified in addressing surface water hydrology related issues in Alberta, and will be able to perform basic calculations in addressing these issues. Completion of EXERM 4250, EXERM 4252 and EXERM 4307 is strongly recommended.
