Description

The free online course Diploma in Soil and Water Conservation Engineering course will give you a better understanding of soil and water conservation practices and problems. You will first learn about soil erosion including the mechanics, causes and types of soil erosion, as well as various factors affecting soil erosion and the effects of both soil erosion and water erosion control methods.

Next, the course teaches you about the process of soil loss including soil loss estimation and measurement, the universal soil loss equation, and the concepts of erosivity and erodibility. Then, you will learn about bunds including problems around contour and graded bunds, and terraces and problems on bench terraces and broad-base terraces. You will also be introduced to grassed waterways and problems on grassed waterways as well as parabolic grassed waterways. The course will then examine various gully control measures and the fundamentals of open channel hydraulics.
