|Natural and human-induced hazards
||Be aware of the processes of flooding (flash and lag responses) and the effect of humans on fluvial processes, including the effect of urbanization on stream flow and percolation; urbanization and forestry on both flooding and stream siltation and the impacts of agriculture, mining and industry. Flooding is a natural phenomenon that can be exacerbated by the effects of human activity. Understand that changes in land use can affect flood recurrence intervals. Study hazards in terms of risk vulnerability and response.
