HYD 547: Hydrological Modeling

Spring 2012
Lecture: MW 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm, SPEARE 129

Instructor: Mark Person

Introduction to finite difference (FD) and finite element (FE) method applied to ordinary and partial differential equations. Analysis and synthesis of issues in hydrologic sciences using mathematical modeling. Conceptual modeling process: model conceptualization and parameterization, model verification, model validation, and model prediction. Application to surface water, and groundwater systems. Students will be exposed to the following modeling packages: MATLAB and MODFLOW. Students will be expected to develop 6 matlab programs to solve a variety of simple 1-D and 2-D finite element and finite difference approximations of flow and transport problems.
