Courses – Steven A. Margulis, Ph.D.

C&EE 103: Applied Numerical Computing and Modeling in Civil and Environmental Engineering
Introduction to numerical computing with specific applications in civil and environmental engineering. Topics include error and computer arithmetic, root finding, curve fitting, numerical integration and differentiation, solution of systems of linear and nonlinear equations, numerical solution of ordinary and partial differential equations.

C&EE 150: Introduction to Hydrology
Study of the hydrologic cycle and relevant atmospheric processes, water and energy balance, radiation, precipitation formation, infiltration, evaporation, vegetation transpiration, groundwater flow, storm runoff, and flood processes.

C&EE 250C: Hydrometeorology
In-depth study of hydrometeorological processes. The role of hydrology in the climate system, precipitation and evaporation processes, atmospheric radiation, exchange of mass, heat, and momentum between the soil and vegetation surface and the overlying atmosphere, flux and transport in the turbulent boundary layer, basic remote sensing principles.

C&EE 251C: Remote Sensing with Hydrologic Applications
Introduction to basic physical concepts of remote sensing as they relate to surface and atmospheric hydrologic processes. Applications include radiative transfer modeling and retrieval of hydrologically relevant parameters like topography, soil moisture, snow properties, vegetation, and precipitation

C&EE 251D: Hydrologic Data Assimilation
Introduction to basic concepts of classical and Bayesian estimation theory for purposes of hydrologic data assimilation. Applications geared toward assimilating disparate observations into dynamic models of hydrologic systems. .
