STIA-414 Water in Global Environment
Fall for 2017-2018
We can hardly overestimate the importance of water. It is the most important natural resource, and accordingly, scores of disciplines study every aspect of it. We have one course to make a coherent overview of the nature, occurrence, and management of global water resources. To this end the course focuses on three themes: water quantity and hydrology, physical and biological interactions, and water resources policy and management. We will attempt to integrate these themes throughout the relevance of water on earth, understand the major regional and topical issues, and become familiar with water resources research techniques, analytical tools, international controversies, and data sources.
