Language of Teaching / Examination:English
Duration:1 semester
Frequency of Offer: Every summer semester
Credits: 6
Learning Outcome:At the end of the module the student are able to apply methods to assess and to balance the components of the water cylce and to derive properties of surface and subsurface catchments with respect to runoff generation and water yield. They can simulate hydrological responses of the water balance components to different inputs.
Contents:Elements of the water balance as a function of space and time; determination of available surface and groundwater resources; management practices for surface and groundwater resources: application of statistic, stochastic and deterministic methods in the fields of watershed modeling, system hydrology, reservoir management, flood prediction and integrative resources management, isotopic hydrology
