Hydrology

Unit 6

Topic 8 in your Review Book


  • Hydrology is the study of water in, on and around the earth

  • The water cycle

  • a model of the movement and changes in phase of water at and near the surface of the earth


  • Evapotranspiration:

  • A combination of:

  • the evaporation of surface and ground water and

  • the release of water vapor through the pores of leaves

  • It is the source of all atmospheric water vapor


  • Precipitation:

  • the source of water for the earth

  • in the form of rain, drizzle, snow, sleet, freezing rain and/or hail


3 water and climate
3. Water and Climate

  • Climate is the overall view of a region’s weather conditions over a long period of time

  • The two factors tied to climate are:

  • Temperature

  • Moisture


  • Potential evapotranspiration is the amount of water vapor that would occur in an area if the water was available.

  • It is mostly determined by the amount of insolation an area receives (which determines the regions’ average temperature)


  • When

    • PPT < ET: the climate is arid or dry

    • PPT > ET: the climate is humid or wet


  • Storage:

  • ground and surface waters

  • Surplus:

  • excess water

  • Deficit:

  • not enough water


A factors influencing climate
A. Factors influencing climate

  • Latitude:

    as latitude increases,

    temperature decreases

  • Planetary wind and pressure belt: see ESRT page 14



Concepts of the water cycle
Concepts of the Water Cycle

A. Infiltration:

  • the process by which water soaks into the ground under the influence of gravity

  • The water table is the limit of infiltration






  • As porosity increases it.

  • permeability increases

  • As degree of sorting increases

  • porosity increases and

  • permeability increases

  • As roundness increases

  • porosity increases and

  • permeability increases


B water table
B. Water Table it.

  • The interface between the zone of aeration and the zone of saturation

  • Its depth fluctuates and is dependent upon the amount of available moisture




Normal depth it.
