2 WFM 6204: Hydrologic Statistics © Dr. Akm Saiful IslamDr. Akm Saiful Islam WFM 6204: Hydrologic Statistics October 2007 Semester Instructor: A.K.M. Saiful Islam Contact: Room No. 306 Tel , Ext (Off.) Web:

3 WFM 6204: Hydrologic Statistics © Dr. Akm Saiful IslamDr. Akm Saiful Islam Goals: This course will provide an introduction to stochastic methods used in hydrology. The level of understanding should, upon completion of the course, be sufficient to understand and appreciate the important issues on stochastic hydrology where statistical methods are used in prediction and interpretation of hydrologic processes.

Probabilistic analysis; 4. Multiple regression and correlation; 5. Regional analysis; 6. Analysis of hydrologic time series; 7. Sequential generation of hydrologic information; 8. Stochastic models; 9. Statistical decisions.
