Synopsis:

Advanced hydrology course. Quantitative description of hydrological processes. Methods of measurement and data evaluation. Deterministic and stochastic modeling in hydrology.

Requirements:

N/A

Syllabus of lectures:

Water in the atmosphere.

Radiation balance.

Transport processes in the surface layer of the atmosphere.

Determination of evaporation intensity.

Snowmelt.

Subsurface water.

Infiltration.

Soil-plant-atmosphere continuum.

Catchment runoff generation.

Rainfall-runoff modeling.

Hydrological observations and statistical evaluation of hydrological data.

Hydrological extremes.

Stochastic modeling in hydrology.

Syllabus of tutorials:
