Transcript of "Mapec dry land water resources dr. ali el-naqa2"

  1. 1. 2013 Course Catalogue Course Description: Water and water resources are critical issues for the sustenance of nearly every society. This course examines the hydrologic processes of the hydrologic cycle, occurrence, use, management, and conservation of water and water resources in Jordan. and around the world. It further discusses the environmental, economic, and social implications of floods, droughts, dams, and water usage as well as current issues in water quality, water pollution, climate change impacts on water resources and integrated water resource management Students will gain an understanding of the environmental, societal, and political impacts of water, water resources, and changes in water supply and availability, and they will be introduced to current and emerging trends in water resource issues, development, and technology.
