ECO5300EN - Analysis of Hydrologic Processes in Soils

Course description

This course explores the movement, distribution, and quality of water on Earth and other planets, including the water cycle, water resources and environmental watershed sustainability. Hydrology subdivides into surface water hydrology, groundwater hydrology (hydrogeology), and marine hydrology. Domains of hydrology include hydrometeorology, surface hydrology, hydrogeology, drainage-basin management and water quality, where water plays the central role.

How this course benefits students

The majority of the earths surface is covered by water. Water plays a sificant rolw in life on the planet. This course explores the importance, and mechanics of how water is distributed both underground and surface water.

Why this course is important

Students seeking careers as land managers with government of private agencies should take this course

How this course relates to missional core values

Biblically based

Water is both powerful as a flood and as a molecule.

Missionally driven

All life forms require water, the body is mostly made of water, why is water so important especially in hydrologic processes

Contextually informed

This study will ground students on the movement of water on several layers of capacity

Interculturally focused

Water is key to life for all cultures

Practically minded

Steudents will have sound knowledge of ther relationship of the movement of water in land

Experientially transformed

This course will utilize lessons and sound science to understand the processes involved in the movement of water in soil
