Synopsis:

The aim of this subject is to extend the basic knowledge on runoff genesis (precipitation, evapotranspiration and runoff processes) in the catchment scale by using techniques developer by water management and landscape ecology. The planned seminars will be concerned predominantly on the observation of meteorological and hydrological variables, and their application in the catchment – reservoir system and water resources recharge. The special attention will be paid to the critical phases of runoff and water quality genesis with respect to the impacts of global climate change and socio-economic situations.

Requirements:

none

Syllabus of lectures:

- Atmospheric hydrology

- Runoff genesis

- Watershed hydrology

- Hydrological extremes (floods and draughts)

- Lake and wetland hydrology

- Water quality (biogeochemical processes)

- Hydrologic modeling

- Student presentations

Study Objective:

The aim is to estimate both atmospheric and hydrological fluxes in natural catchments, and to predict changes with the climate change and developed environments.
