This module addresses fundamental topics in hydrology and hydraulics through a real-world application of floodplain analysis on the Pecatonica River near Darlington, WI. These key water resources topics include the application of the principles of watershed hydrology (where does water go in the watershed, by what pathway, and for how long), where to find data required for floodplain analysis, the theoretical underpinnings used to analyze gradually varied flow conditions, and the development of a HEC-RAS model to simulate flood extents for different return period discharges.
