FRS 002. Chaos, Complexity and Christianity (2)
Lecture—2 hours. Prerequisite: none, open to all undergraduate students. Shows a linkage between complexity research and Christianity.—I-II-III.

HYD 141. Physical Hydrology (4)
Lecture—3 hours; discussion—1 hour.
Prerequisite: Physics 9B, Mathematics 21B; course
100 recommended. Introduction to the processes
that constitute the hydrologic cycle. Special
emphasis on a quantitative description of the
following processes: precipitation, infiltration,
evaporation, transpiration, surface runoff, and
groundwater runoff.—I.

HYD 142. Systems Hydrology (4)
Lecture—3 hours; discussion—1 hour.
Prerequisite: course 141 or Civil and Environmental
Engineering 142. General course considering hydrologic
processes from a systems or statistical model
perspective. General probability concepts are
applied to frequency, time series and spatial
data analysis. Linear systems are also considered
in conjunction with Kalman filter techniques.—II.

HYD 264. Modeling of Hydrologic Processes
(3)
Lecture—3 hours. Prerequisite: course 141
or the equivalent and Statistics 102 or the equivalent.
Techniques used to model the spatio-temporal structure
of rainfall and runoff are introduced. Procedures
studied include those based on stochastic point
processes, chaos theory, fractal geometry, and
fractional noises. Offered in alternate years.
—III.

HYD 273. Introduction to Geostatistics
(3)
Lecture—3 hours. Prerequisite: Statistics
130A and 130B, or the equivalent. Statistical
treatment of spatial data with emphasis on hydrologic
problems. Topics include theory of random functions,
variogram analysis, Kriging, co-Kriging, indicator
geostatistics, and stochastic simulation of spatial
variability. Demonstration and use of interactive
geostatistical software included. Offered in alternate
years.—I.
