CEE 311 - Hydroscience

Description:   Introduction to the water cycle, its relationship to the environment and human attempts to conserve, control, and utilize water judiciously. Fundamentals of hydrology, hydraulics, coastal engineering and water resources engineering.


CEE 412 -  Groundwater Hydraulics

Description:  This class provides the engineering fundamentals of groundwater flow.  The major focus is on developing and implementing 2-D, steady-state, analytical models of groundwater flow. Transient groundwater flow modeling, hydraulic testing methods, and numerical modeling are also introduced.


CEE 619a -  Hydroecology

Description:   The course will provide a description of the hydrologic mechanisms that underlie ecological pattern and processes. We will develop an understanding of the movement of water and energy through the soil plant atmosphere continuum.  Case studies on the hydroecologic function and ecosystem services of varied environments will be presented.

        Check out the class projects from 2008 and 2010!


CEE 619b -  Environmental Flows

Description:   Introduction to the the use and development of environmental flow regimes for describing and prescribing the quantity, timing, and quality of water flows required to sustain freshwater and estuarine ecosystems and human livelihoods and well-being that depend upon these ecosystems.
