    I. What I Know My enthusiasm for hydrology began when I worked with a hydrologist as a student in the NASA Girls summer program. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Every Thursday for five weeks my mentor, Miss Aimee Teaby, and I would do something related to STEM. For example, the one week we would performed a science activity such as extracting DNA from spinach, and the next week we would do something related to technology, and so on. During these meetings, Miss

    received at higher elevations, impacting the major water sources for many areas in the country. The water crises in my country further solidified my interest in pursuing my career in Water Resources Engineering, especially studying the impacts of hydrology and environment on water resources and vice versa. Afghanistan has 80 billion cubic meters (bcm) of potentially available renewable water resources annually, of which 58 bcm is surface water and 22 bcm ground water. Annual water use for irrigation

    Coming fresh out of high school, earth sciences was never on my radar as a potential future career field. There were no earth science classes available at my schools from kindergarten to 12th grade; I was only briefly exposed to the idea of it during a Georgia history class in middle school. I entered college as a biology major, but subsequently went through the common stage of frantic major switching after I encountered organic chemistry. In the end, I settled with geology after conducting mildly

  • Effects Of Urbanisation On The Hydrology Of A Catchment

    Question 1 a) Explain the affects that Urbanisation can have on the hydrology of a catchment. Outline how SuDs can mitigate these impacts and explain the role and features of the following systems: • Permeable pavements • Swale • Detention Ponds Urbanisation affects the hydrology of a catchment in various ways, it causes issues with the natural drainage of the environment by blocking stream channels and removing trees which help break the momentum of rain. Urbanisation creates a lot of surfaces

  • Drylands

    Homework #11 Drylands in the western United States are subject to generally low soil moisture content. Understanding the hydrology and moisture levels of these soils is crucial to understanding dryland ecosystems (Newman et al. 1997 Journal of Hydrology; Wythers et al. 1999 SSSAJ). Soil water is lost through bare-soil evaporation and transpiration (Wythers et al. 1999 SSSAJ). Commonly, these processes have been linked together as evapotranspiration; distinguishing between the two is a difficult

    overburden material is then placed in adjacent valleys, burying headwater streams. Post-mining topography, vegetation, soils, and runoff pathways can be severely altered during the mining and reclamation process, greatly altering the landscape’s hydrology and the biochemistry of the watershed. This paper will attempt to synthesize research related to MTM/VF coal extraction as to convey an understanding of the effects of

    proposal below: 1. Topography & Hydrology Mapping The section is divided into two main headings i.e. Topography and Hydrology, when discussing topography we mean the condition and type of the terrain which may be depicting levels of the ground, hills, valleys, forests and water bodies. The topographical mapping is necessary to identify the surface groundwater flows and their velocities. The surface groundwater is related with the runoff quantity and precipitation. Hydrology is the second aspect of this
