Synopsis:

Moderately advanced hydrology course. Quantitative description of hydrological processes. Methods of measurement and data evaluation. Deterministic and stochastic modelling in hydrology.

Requirements:

N/A

Syllabus of lectures:

Global weather patterns and synoptic weather systems.

Water and energy in the atmosphere.

Transport processes in the atmospheric boundary layer.

Estimation of evapotranspiration.

Snowmelt.

Infiltration.

Soil-plant-atmosphere continuum.

Precipitation.

Catchment runoff generation.

Flow routing.

Rainfall-runoff modeling.

Hydrological extremes and design values.

Stochastic modeling in hydrology.

Syllabus of tutorials:

Study Objective:

The course emphasizes the quantitative description of hydrological processes using mathematical and physical approaches. Upon completion of the course, students should be able to use the knowledge gained to solve more advanced hydrological problems requiring the application of numerical models.
