This will make a great addition to my list of open courseware for civil engineers. Unsaturated Zone Hydrology for Scientists [...]

Despite the fact that I just graduated from 4 years of university, I still love to learn.  Unfortunately, as an undergraduate student in civil engineering it was impossible to take every course offered by my department.  The good news is that there’s a fair collection of coursewares that can be downloaded for free from various [...]
