REGIONAL CATCHMENT STUDIES: RESOURCES AND MANAGEMENT
Credit points: 15
In this subject the water resources in Australia are examined at catchment scale and on a regional basis. The processes and properties of Australian surface water runoff, groundwater movement and water quality are examined, and the interrelationships between landform, land use and hydrology are explored. Particular emphasis is placed on properties of northern Victoria catchments. Specific topics to be examined include floodplain management, urban hydrology, river regulation, and interactions between shallow groundwater and surface land features. Principles of catchment management are introduced and several case studies of contrasting management strategies are detailed.
