The aim of this course is to provide guided advanced level learning about catchment processes. The course will focus on how water delivery is related to the interaction between water supply and underlying catchment properties. Based on this vision, the course will explore strategies to monitor and model both individual and catchment scale processes. Key topics of focus will include: different perspectives of the catchment; rainfall-river processes; hydrological system components; and landscape evolution. Additionally, students will design, develop, and install sensors to monitor hydrological system components, and will develop skills in data analysis and the implementation of simple conceptual models.
