July 2018: CE626 - Groundwater Systems Planning and Management 

The course is designed for post graduate students in water resources engineering and advanced undergraduate students interested in hydrology. This is a full semester course covering basics of groundwater hydrology, groundwater modeling, and planning. I will teach first half of this course covering basic groundwater hydrology and groundwater management. The course will provide students an understanding of the occurrence and movement of groundwater, how it interacts with other components of the hydrologic cycle, and its management. 

Part 1 of the course online at: https://riddhisingh.weebly.com/ce626.html

 

Jan 2018: CE766 - Watershed Management 

This course is designed for advanced graduate students in Civil Engineering and post graduate students in Water Resources Engineering. Broadly, the course aims to equip students with state-of-the-art techniques for decision analysis for complex environmental systems using river basins as the system of interest. We explore different aspects of managing these natural systems including design of sustainable strategies in the presence of stakeholders with diverse preferences, role of community engagement, etc.

Water in the anthropocene laboratory

Water scarcity will be a major challenge that the coupled humanatural system will face in the coming decades. Our group focuses on developing frameworks that:
i) assess water availability in a region under a changing environment, and,
ii) identify strategies for sharing of water.
Our present focus is on diagnosing controls on water availability at regional scales and inter-regional sharing of water in data scarce regions. We do this by developing modelling frameworks that assimilate different data sources (both ground based and satellite measured) to provide estimates of regional water availability. We are also beginning to explore water availability at urban scales focusing on water supply for Hyderabad at the present moment.
