Curricula and Syllabi in Hydrology.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This collection of papers is intended to provide a means for the exchange of information on hydrological techniques and for the coordination of research and data collection. The objectives and trends in hydrological education are presented. The International Hydrological Decade (IHD) Working Group on Education recommends a series of topics that must be taught to ensure a minimum of theoretical knowledge and adequate practical training. Two examples of curricula and syllabi for complete undergraduate programs in hydrology are presented. One is from the U.S.S.R., the second from the United States. Post-graduate education in hydrology is discussed and three types of programs presented. Selected syllabi prepared by the IHD Working Group on Education, by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Working Group on Training in Hydrometeorology, by U.S.S.R. educators, by United States educators and by UNESCO are presented in the appendices.
