ENVE-205 Environmental Engineering Hydrology


CHAPTER I: Introduction

In this chapter, introductory information about the hydrologic cycle and its relevance to society is presented.

Study Plan:

        Learning the social importance and engineering relevance of hydrologic science (Section 1.2).

        Learning the water budget and mass balance concepts (Section 1.3).

        Learning the hydrologic cycle and its components, incorporating the mass balance concept into hydrologic cycle calculations, defining precipitation, evaporation, transpiration, infiltration, abstraction, depletion storage, rainfall excess, and runoff in basic sense (Section 1.4).

        Example problem 1.1.

        Homework problems 1, 5, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13.
