Course Synopsis

he hydro-geography deals specifically with: the water balance the spatial and temporal changes of water storage and the flow behavior with regard to the quantitative aspects, as well as the water quality in terms of qualitative aspects.

Course Learning Outcomes

The students would be able to conduct conducive research on hydrological issues.
