BEE 6110

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2019-2020.

Introduces methods in hydrologic engineering to assess and cope with climate variability and change. The course will cover both statistical and physical approaches to analyzing and modeling hydrologic systems. Topics include time series analysis, extreme event frequency analysis, trend detection, water balance modeling, and climate change assessments for water systems. Applications to water supply, stormwater, and flood risk analyses are discussed and used as examples throughout the course.

When Offered Fall.

Prerequisites/Corequisites Prerequisite: introduction to probability and statistics (e.g. CEE 3040, ENGRD 2700, ILRST 2100, BTRY 3010, or AEM 2100), one hydrology course (e.g. BEE 3710) or climate course (e.g. EAS 3050) at the 2000 level or higher, or permission of instructor.
