Intro­duces the prac­tice of sur­face water hydrol­o­gy as water plays a role in the devel­op­ment of most human activ­i­ties. Var­i­ous hydro­log­ic process­es will be described. Meth­ods of devel­op­ment of inten­si­ty dura­tion fre­quen­cy curves, stream flow mea­sure­ment meth­ods, flood fre­quen­cy analy­sis and risk assess­ment in hydro­log­ic design will be dis­cussed. A brief overview of ground­wa­ter flow will be pro­vid­ed. An intro­duc­tion to soil ero­sion and soil con­ser­va­tion prac­tices will also be pro­vid­ed. Var­i­ous hydro­log­ic and hydraulic modes used in the pro­fes­sion­al domain will be introduced.
