ESP5730 - Contaminant Hydrology
This course expands on Watershed Hydrology (ESP 5320) by taking a closer look at the contaminants carried by water as it moves through the hydrologic cycle. Studied contaminants will include water temperature (an EPA recognized contaminant), pH, nutrients, metals, and organic toxics such as pesticides. We will study the distribution of these contaminants and the theories necessary to understand their fate and transport in watersheds.
