SCQF Level 10 (Year 3 Undergraduate)
The successful management of the quantity and quality of water resources requires an understanding of both hydrological processes and the techniques for making relevant information available for decision-making.The course reviews traditional methods of collecting hydrological data from experimental catchment studies, moving on to explore how simulation modelling may allow this data to be explored, generalised and used for predictions by catchment managers.The linkages between catchment land uses and river conditions are explored by studying contemporary issues such as runoff control, sustainable drainage systems and channel restoration.
