A basis for quantitative analysis of the water resource systems is developed by introducing key principles, methods and tools for hydrologic and water quality analysis, with the opportunity for students to practice their application in simple example situations. The unit will also provide students with an overview of the legal, regulatory and institutional frameworks for water resources management and the key principles applied in Australia.
