Hydrology and geomorphology are essential components of a large number of ecological processes in rivers and estuaries. Understanding the components of a hydrological budget, water quality and channel-forming processes is helpful in the study of chemical/biological interactions in aquatic ecosystems. The modernization of monitoring tools has allowed most water resources managers to distance themselves from data acquisition. However, understanding the requirements of appropriate measurement techniques for discharge, rainfall, water quality and sediments remains essential to appreciate the uncertainty of data that are available. The emphasis of this course is on field techniques.
• A brief introduction to the water cycle and hydrological budget.
• An introduction to the dynamic equilibrium of rivers.
• Familiarization with different flow measurement techniques.
• Construction of flow rating curves.
• Introduction to meteorological and water temperature measurements.
• Introduction to sediment sampling in rivers.
