    Application of Geographic Information Systems in Water Resources. Digital mapping of water resources information. Spatial coordinate systems. Hydrologic terrain analysis using digital elevation models. River and watershed networks. Soil and land use mapping. Flood hydrology modeling and flood plain mapping. The use of remotely sensed data in GIS and hydrologic modeling is reviewed. Lumped parameter, physics‐based, and hybrid approaches to hydrologic modeling are discussed with respect to their geographic data inputs. Finally, several applications areas (e.g., floodplain hydrology, and erosion prediction) for GIS hydrology are described.

    Learning objectives. Graduates who have undertaken the Hydrology and Water Resources specialization will be equipped with: An in-depth understanding of theories and concepts in surface and subsurface hydrology, the physical, chemical and biological interactions between the hydrosphere, the lithosphere, the biosphere and the atmosphere. Read "Geographical Information Systems in Hydrology" by available from Rakuten Kobo. The last few years have witnessed an enormous interest in application of GIS in hydrology and water resources. This is p Brand: Springer Netherlands.
