This course is a lecture-based course designed for juniors, seniors, and first-year graduate students in the Geoscience Department's Hydrology program. It is an interdisciplinary Earth science course concerned with the movement and occurrence of water. In recent years the instructor has been transitioning the class to be more project-based and this module has helped in that transition. The module was done over the last few weeks in the semester.
This course is intended for senior level undergraduate students and graduate students. It provides an overview of hydrologic concepts and their applications in engineering hydrology and hydrologic science. Two sessions per week are dedicated to learning hydrology and one session is dedicated to a computer lab using HEC-HMS hydrologic model. The module was done towards the end of this 16-week long course, spread over a period of 5 weeks. Most of the basic hydrologic concepts were covered prior to the module implementation.
Geologic Hazards is a mid-level undergraduate course primarily for Earth and Planetary Sciences or Environmental Sciences/Studies majors. It investigates a variety of geologic hazards including active faults, earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, floods, and landslides. The course is taught in a "flipped" format in which students engage primarily in active learning during class with little lecture. The provided GETSI lecture materials were given to the students in short video lectures to be viewed at home and then the exercises were used for in class activities.
