Choose a location and do the following
An abstract (overview of your work and conclusion)
An introduction (that will provide a statement of objective and justification for the watershed and time period selected)
Descriptive information on the watershed (size, location, land cover) and data sources
Hydrological analysis of this watershed (real precipitation and flow data for the specific watershed must be presented, and this part must include detailed calculation between precipitation and runoff flow).
Results, discussion of results, including discussion of scientific articles that provide relevant explanation for any of the patterns observed.
References (including all citations you used in your report)
The paper should be about 12 pages (Time new roman, 12) in length.
The project will account for 20% of your overall grade. The written report will be double-spaced. The first part should concisely describe the nature of the problem that will be addressed.
