The Distance learning program in Basic- Hydrological sciences is designed to meet the needs of officials, who work with hydrologic data, particularly in the areas of flood forecasting and design flood analysis etc. The course is intended to provide an understanding of the hydrological cycle, runoff processes, unit Hydrograph, flood forecasting, elements of hydrologic modelling etc., and will prepare the participants for further study in hydrologic methods and forecasting.


Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to: - Understand the elements of the hydrologic cycle - Explain the rainfall runoff process - Grasp Hydro-Meteorological Data collection & validation techniques - Describe the process of stream flow routing - Derive and use a unit hydrograph for forecasting flows - Apply various hydrological modelling methods for streamflow routing - Apply statistical methods to assess flood risk
