This animated and audio Short Course is an excellent
learning or review tool for all professionals involved in watershed management,
a must for libraries geared toward engineering and environmental technology.
Concepts of Watershed Hydrology
is a fully auto-tutorial, animated and narrated audiovisual short course on
CD, with workbook. It is prepared for the lay public, regulators,
public officials, and for practicing professionals who wish to review basic
hydrological fundamentals as they pertain to the watershed and its management.
The course is especially geared to help you participate effectively in land
management decisions, focusing on those that affect runoff water quality.
The animated-audio presentation is in PowerPoint(r). This is an ecological approach
to water and related land resources that defines all terms as they are needed.
The compact disk contains one hundred forty four slides in twelve modules, and
is designed to be useful from high school earth science classes to students
in hydrology courses, practicing professionals who might need some updating
or ecological refresher, and the lay public interested in the relationships
between civilization and runoff water quality. The guidebook includes reproductions
of principal animated and text slides, twenty four thought-provoking multiple
choice questions, a course and learning assessment form, and a list of pertinent
references. The CD is best viewed in PowerPoint XP(r) (2002), but will work
in PowerPoint 2000(r) and even on a computer without that software at all.
