Through a combination of lectures, field and lab exercises, and research projects, students will explore the relationships between river hydrology, river morphology, sediment transport, and watersheds. The course will also evaluate how dams and other human disruptions can disturb the natural equilibrium in these dynamic systems. In addition to theses scientific approaches, the course will also consider rivers as a focus of philosophical and artistic expression.
