The course covers eco-hydrological topics at the intersection of ecology and hydrology. Plant-water interactions and processes central in ecohydrological theories will be a focus.
This course is based on theory and field-based experimentation relevant for ecohydrology. Central ecohydrologic concepts will be considered using the Navarino Environmental Observatory (NEO) in Greece as a specific example. The goal of the course is to bridge ecohydrological theory and practical applications by placing NEO in an ecohydrologic framework and test field-based experiments to confirm this placement.
The course is part of Master's Programme in Hydrology, Hydrogeology and Water recources but can also be read as a separate course. The course is offered in collaboration with Navarino Environmental Observatory (NEO).
Summer term 2021. Study tempo 100%. Excursion to Navarino Environmental Observatory, Greece (1 week).
The course include teaching in the field, which may entail additional cost for the student.
- Theory, 3 credits
- Project, 4.5 credits
Instruction consists of seminars, field trips, laboratory work and project work.
