Learning Objectives

  • Hydrology and Water Resources Management

    To provide the main concepts on surface hydrology and water resources management in agriculture

  • Sanitary and Environmental Engineering

    To give scientific knowledge concerning the pollution of water, soil and air and to provide technical and scientific measures to prevent, monitor and mitigate the environmental pollution.

Detailed Course Content

  • Hydrology and Water Resources Management

    Hydrology and Water Resources Management

    Hydrology:.Elements for the characterization of the hydrological basin in different climatic contexts; drought and flood hydrological analysis; study of the surface runoff using the SCS method; Hydrological soil characterization; Analysis of water and energy exchange processes in the soil-plant-atmosphere system; Water Resources Management: Study of the evapotranspiration processes related to soil hydrology. Remote sensing techniques applied to map crop evapotranspiration and vegetation indices; Use of the geophysical tomografy for the analysis of soil water dynamics. Planning of natural water resources, which integrates the use of unconventional water (treated urban wastewater, salt water, etc…) within water scarce contexts; wastewater reuse in agriculture; analysis of deficit irrigation criteria.
