MS Advising

Year: 2010
Name: Mr. Christopher Siebenmorgen
Organization: Biological & Agricultural Engineering, Kansas State University
Thesis: Hydrologic Indices Analysis of Climate Change in a Northeast Kansas Watershed

BAE 669/869 Advanced Watershed Modeling

Year: 2010, 2012
College: Kansas State University
Role: Lead Co-Instructor

Summary

Undergraduate course on study and evaluation of physical processes at the watershed scale using hydrologic and water-quality models. Fundamental principles of hydrologic cycle are discussed; rainfall excess and runoff hydrographs, overland and channel flow, detention ponds, wetlands, and etc. Impacts of climate change on hydrologic regimes in Kansas are explored. In-class and homework projects on simple and complex hydrologic and watershed models: TR-55, STEPL, BASINS, and SWAT.

ATM 661 Water, Wastewater and Watershed Management

Year: 2010, 2011
College: Kansas State University
Role: Guest Instructor

Summary:

Multidisciplinary undergraduate course on watershed sources, fate, and transport of pollutants, with focus on issues of the prairie agroecosystem, and impacts of watershed protection and restoration strategies on water and environmental quality. I developed a section on watershed models and environmental assessment of non-point source pollution.

BAE 660 Natural Resources Engineering II

Year: 2009
College: Kansas State University
Role: Co-Instructor

Summary:

Undergraduate course on design and operative problems of irrigation/water application systems: topics on water balance; non-point source pollution and water quality; wetland and detention pond design, and hydraulic routing are discussed. WinTR-55 hydrologic model is used for design project.
