About this course

Skip About this course

Water within the environment is often modelled both to fill-in gaps in data as well as to predict future water quality and quantity. This course brings together the different aspects of the hydrologic cycle and introduces several common watershed modelling techniques. Often the models used are considered black boxes where data goes in and answers come out. This course will look inside that black box and provide participants with the skills to dig deeper into understanding the basics of many watershed models used around the world.
