(3.1)

 This course allows guest users to enter

This theme views a drainage basin as an open system with inputs, outputs and feedback which attempt to maintain a dynamic equilibrium, and then seeks to look at the basin's physical components and the ways these are managed by humans. The management of drainage basins deals with issues and strategies, supply and demand and, in a number of instances, international relations. The theme of river basin management has close links with other themes such as resources, hazards, ecosystems, political geography and perception of landscape. This theme requires students to demonstrate mapping and graphing skills and to use case studies wherever appropriate.
