Course Contents

  • Water levels of rivers, lakes and reservoirs, Gauges and procedures for measurement of state. Frequency of gauge measurements. Discharge measurements: by current meter, float method, dilution method. Measurement of correspondence stage by moving boat method, Ultrasonic method, Electromagnetic method, Stream gauging stations. Purpose: selection of sites, control sections, Artificial controls, stage discharge relationships. Stream flow computation, computation of average gauges height, computation of average discharge, Quality control of stream flow data.

  • Sediment discharge: Measurement of suspended sediment discharge, Measurement of bed-sediment discharge.

  • Collection, processing and publication of data. Collection and observation procedures. Transmission of hydrological and meteorological observations. Quality control, storage and cataloging. Special data collection requirement: `bucket surveys`` of storm rainfall, weather radar data. Extreme stages and discharges.

  • Pre-requisite: WMA 313.


Course Requirements

  • This is a compulsory course for students in the Department of Water Resources Management and Agrometeorology and the student must have passed WMA 313 before taking this course. As a school regulation, a minimum of 75% attendance is required of the students to enable him/her write the final examination
