CEE6930 Special Problems: Advanced Hydrology through CUAHSI Virtual University

ONLINE course offered at Utah State University as part of CUAHSI Virtual University, Fall 2019.

Utah State University Instructor and Coordinator: David Tarboton, http://hydrology.usu.edu/dtarb

CUAHSI Virtual University is a unique national online course, consisting of modules on highly specialized hydrology topics from recent research advances. Its aim is to enhance the depth of graduate course offerings at universities across the nation. Students from participating universities can enroll in a subset of modules of their choosing, resulting in collaborations between instructors and students at different universities. Students earn credit at their home institutions.

The course will run from September through December.  There are nine separate modules, each offered by an instructor at one of the participating universities scheduled in a four week block at the times below. Students choose which of these modules they want to do, and may register for any number of modules.
