Transcript

  • 1. Hydrology The science of water, its properties, distribution and circulation, both on the surface and underground.
  • 2. HydrologyWater flowsthrough oursite by avariety ofpathways
  • 3. Water BudgetsInputs = Outputs + StoragePrecipitation EvapotranspirationGroundwater discharge Groundwater rechargeSurface Flow Surface flow - Runoff- Streams- Tides
  • 4. Seasonal Variability Average Monthly Precipitation 6 5 4Inches 3 2 1 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 MONTH http://www.sercc.com/climateinfo/historical/historical.html
  • 5. A = R * K * LS * C * PWhere A = estimated average soil loss in tons per acre per year R = rainfall-runoff erosivity factor K = soil erodibility factor L = slope length factor S = slope steepness factor C = cover-management factor P = support practice factor
  • 6. Erosivity Index zone map and calculator http://ei.tamu.edu/index.html
  • 7. When all factors other than rainfall were held constant, the soil loss is directly proportional to the total kinetic energy of the storm event times its maximum 30- minute intensity.This factor, Rainfall/Runoff Factor (R), has been called the Erosion Index (EI) factor.
