The Hydrologic Sciences Graduate Group provides a comprehensive hydrologic science curriculum that emphasize process-oriented critical thinking and quantitative analysis, with increasing use of environmental informatics. Courses of study include hydrology, hydrogeology, vadose zone processes, hydrogeochemistry, river restoration, modeling, geographic information systems, water resources management, irrigation and drainage, and climate change. The program also incorporates a vigorous integration of derivative ecology, geophysical science, and engineering as well as a modicum of law, economics, and policy. This design broadens the skills and knowledge of the natural science or engineering student interested in any aspect of water-related phenomena. The program expands the boundaries of the traditional discipline of hydrology to encompass the nexus between water and linked constituents yielding complex phenomena and systems.
