Synopsis:

1. Introduction to environmental monitoring and data assimilation

2. Data acquisition techniques (on-site, remote sensing; real-time, on-line, off-line)

3. Monitoring of meteorological characteristics (precipitation, temperature, wind, air humidity)

4. Methods of isotope hydrology (including analysis of stable isotopes)

5. Monitoring of flow characteristics (urban infrastructure, urban streams)

6. Monitoring of water quality characteristics (incl. sediment)

7. Monitoring of ecological characteristics (biological communities, stream eco-morphology)

8. Monitoring of soil hydrological quantities (water content, water potential)

9. Assessment of soil hydraulic properties (retention curve, hydraulic conductivity)

10. Non-invasive imaging of soil (x-ray tomography, neutron imaging, magnetic resonance imaging)

11. Uncertainty analysis and propagation of monitoring (uncertainty sources, uncertainty analysis methods, propagation methods)

12. Time series analysis

13. Case studies
