Data and Model Driven Hydrology Education

This project aims to provide a collaborative platform for instructors to publish hydrology related instruction in the form of units and steps. All published material is available for anyone to use as is, or can be modified for implementation using alternate data, computational tools, or learning outcomes, among others. It is expected that the modified steps or units will be re-published in the system so the cycle of use and modify continues to keep the content up-to-date, applicable using broader geographic settings, data sources and computational tools.

Information for Instructors: Explore available steps and units for use in your classrooms. If you want to contribute a new step or unit, use the contribute link on the left to get started.

Information for Students: Browse available steps and units to learn a hydrologic concept by using observed data and computational tools.
