|Lismore||Session 1||Session 1|
Develops a student's understanding of the water cycle and shows how to perform quantitative hydrologic analyses. Provides students with the knowledge to determine total and peak runoff from catchments for a variety of design calculations.
The Australian hydrologic cycle
Measurement of hydrologic parameters
Statistical analysis of hydrologic data
Hydrologic analysis in modern engineering practice
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
