GHY 5816 - GIScience and Water Resources (3)

When Offered: Fall, Spring
This course provides an overview of the contribution that GIScience (including GIS, remote sensing and other geospatial technologies) can make in addressing the spatial representation and analysis of water resources problems. This course takes a geocomputational approach to linking GIS and remote sensing software and data with water resources models to represent space-time processes. The geocomputational linkage with watershed and flood modeling will be explored. Through this course, students will also learn how to conceptualize and implement a GIScience project.
Prerequisite: GHY 3812 (Introduction to GIS) or permission of the instructor.
Lecture two hours, laboratory two hours. [Dual-listed with GHY 4816.]
