Learning outcomes of the course is to apprise of the students with the individual components of surface runoff and erosion processes. The conditions of the arising these processes arise, the measurement and modeling options.

The basis of the subject is the measurement and subsequent analysis of data using rainfall simulations on the elementary scale in decimetres to square meters.

Students will be acquainted with the methods and possibilities of the measurig with rainfall simulations, including laboratory methods to analyze physico-chemical properties of transported substances. Experimentally obtained values will be used for numerical modeling. Optimization of computational relations, calibration and verification of models. Extrapolation from small scale to basin size will be also tested.

Students will be involved in work teams to acquire measurement techniques and develop a stand-alone assessment and modeling role. Excursions to field experimental sites are part of the lessons.
