Course Description

The course is designed to build understanding of the technologies and methods of analysis of water resource management issues and of the interdependence they have to each other when real problems must be evaluated. It presumes no prior background in any water related technology. The emphasis is upon building understanding of fundamental concepts in order to apply them to the management of water resources. Management in this case implies resolution of conflicts in technology utilization of a resource because of scarcity or incompatibility of competing possible uses. Hypothetical cases are resolved to aid in converting concepts into reasonable applications to problems.
