ENVS-500 Ecohydrology (3) Course Level: Undergraduate/Graduate

Ecohydrology (3) This course examines how hydrological processes at macro and watershed scales influence aquatic ecology. It also examines the influence of velocity, volume, flow path (e.g. overland, groundwater, pipe-flow), and water chemistry on stream biology/ecology. Emphasis is on freshwater and estuarine systems. Students are introduced to quantitative modeling of hydrological processes.
