  • The Shape of a Hydrograph - 372 Words
    The shape of the hydrograph varies according to a number of controlling factors in the drainage basin A number of factors (known as drainage basin controls) influence the way in which a river responds to precipitation and have an effect on the shape of the hydrograph. The size, shape and relief of the basin are important controls. Water takes longer to reach the trunk stream in a large, round basin than in does in a small, narrow one Where gradients are steep, water runs off faster,...

    The SCS method (SCS National Engineering Handbook, 1972) of estimating direct runoff from storm rainfall is based on methods developed by SCS hydrologists in the last three decades, and it is in effect a consolidation of these earlier methods. The hydrologic principles of the method are not new, but they are put to new uses. Because most SCS work is with un-gauged watersheds (not gauged for runoff) the method was made to be usable with rainfall and watershed data that are ordinarily...

     Since lately, a lot of the news we hear about water rations distributed due to drought. Actually, drought occurs when human demand for water exceeds the available supply. Drought can be caused by too little precipitation over an extended period, as most people assume. Then, drought can cause serious economic problem, environmental impact, and social impact. The first drought’s effect was economic probem. Many economic problem occur in agriculture and related sectors, because of the reliance...

     1. SURFACE RUNOFF INTRODUCTION: Runoff means the draining or flowing off of precipitation from a catchment area through a surface channel enters into a stream channel. It is convenient to visualize three main routes of travel; overland flow (air hujan limpahanpermukaan), interflow, and ground water flow (air dari punca bawah tanah). 1 Runoff results from rainfall occurrence in a hydrologic catchment. Rainfall-runoff relations are Interflow/subsurface and base flow/groundwater...

  • Geohydrology - 3357 Words
    GEOHYDROLOGY HYDROLOGIC CYCLE The movement of water on the earth's surface and through the atmosphere is known as the hydrologic cycle. Water is taken up by the atmosphere from the earth's surface in vapour form through evaporation. It may then be moved from place to place by the wind until it is condensed back to its liquid phase to form clouds. Water then returns to the surface of the earth in the form of either liquid (rain) or solid (snow, sleet, etc.) precipitation. Water transport can...

    Urbanization within a drainage basin can affect flow to and within a river channel. How far do you agree with this statement? Explain your answer. Urbanization within a drainage basin is one of the factors affecting flow to and within a river channel. Flows within a river channel are affected by a number of physical factors such as permeability of rocks and precipitation of rainfall as well. Flow to and within a river channel refers to the various types of transfer processes of water in the...
