This playlist is a curated collection of videos that explore the science and engineering behind our most precious resource, water. From the study of the movement and distribution of water in the environment (hydrology) to the behavior of fluids in pipes and channels (hydraulics), this playlist covers a wide range of topics related to water resources engineering.

In this comprehensive video series, we will dive into the world of watershed modeling, covering everything you need to know from start to finish. Whether you're a beginner or looking to sharpen your skills, join us as we explore data requirements, watershed delineation, model setup, hydrologic methods, control setup, model run, and analysis of results. Get ready to unravel the secrets of HEC-HMS and master the art of hydrologic modeling. Let's embark on this enlightening journey together! 

Throughout this playlist, you'll find a range of tutorials, demonstrations, and case studies that highlight the power of ArcGIS Pro in addressing the complex challenges faced by water resources engineers. You'll learn how to leverage GIS tools and techniques to make informed decisions, improve planning processes, and optimize water resource management.

This playlist covers a wide range of topics to help you gain a deeper understanding of how Python can be used to solve real-world problems in the field of water resources engineering. With clear explanations, step-by-step tutorials, and hands-on exercises, you'll be able to master the Python programming language and apply it to your projects in no time.

In this playlist, you will start from scratch to get familiar with the different capabilities of HydroCAD. HydroCAD is a software program designed for stormwater modeling and design. It is commonly used by civil engineers, architects, and planners to analyze and design stormwater management systems. HydroCAD allows users to simulate the movement of rainwater through a variety of surfaces, including rooftops, parking lots, and roadways, and to model the performance of various stormwater management practices such as detention basins, infiltration systems, and rain gardens.

Fluid mechanics is the study of fluids and their behavior in motion, and it plays a crucial role in various fields, including engineering, physics, and biology. This playlist features videos that delve into the fundamental principles of fluid mechanics, such as the conservation of mass, momentum, and energy. You'll also find videos that explore the fascinating world of turbulence, fluid flow through different geometries, and the impact of fluid mechanics on various applications.

Watershed delineation is the process of identifying and mapping the boundaries of a watershed, which is an area of land where all the surface water drains into a common outlet, such as a river, lake, or ocean. The concept is based on the natural topography of the land, where water flows downhill from higher elevations to lower elevations. 

The curve number is a dimensionless value that ranges between 30 and 100. It is based on a variety of factors such as soil type, land use, hydrologic condition, and antecedent moisture conditions. The higher the curve number, the less water can infiltrate into the soil, resulting in higher runoff potential.
