Course Description:
Introduction to the geochemical, physical hydrological and biological properties of water systems at the level of a watershed.   This course applies principles of surface hydrology, aquatic ecology, redox and acid-base chemistry, field sampling, and experimental design. Includes a significant laboratory component involving GIS and the analysis of samples collected in the field.   Prerequisites: Physical Geology (GY 130 or GY 140), Statistics (EV 228, BY 220, MA 217 or MA 117), Energy (EV 212) or General Chemistry II (CH 108), and Ecology (EV 209 or BY 208).
