Supervisor:
Department of Hydraulics and Hydrology
Synopsis:

The course is oriented mainly on the study of water phenomena at the Earth. In the focus of this subject are: meteorological processes near the ground and precipitation-runoff formation.

Requirements:

No prerequisities required.

Syllabus of lectures:

Sun radiation and balance of energy, climate system of the Earth,stability of the atmosphere, atmospheric depressions and cyclones, formation of clouds, water balance: precipitation, evaporation and runoff genesis, field measurement and data processing, streamflow routing, mathematical modelling of hydrological processes.

Syllabus of tutorials:

Measurement and data processing of hydrological variables, mass and double-mass analysis, estimation of streamflow extremes, hydrological forecasting.

Study Objective:

The aim of the course is recognition of water phenomena at the Earth.

Evidence of past climate, observing the weather and climate change; hydrometric network: atmospheric precipitation, evaporation and streamflow, water in the soil and groundwater; data processing; hydrological analysis: rainfall-runoff relationship, flood frequency and probabilities, droughts, catchment modelling; engineering applications: flood routing, water resources control. ,
