Models and information systems are important tools for water management. This course focuses on different types of models and these are used to describe the flow of water and substances
Time-series analysis is used for examining hydrological data; for analyzing spatially distributed data geographic information systems (GIS) and geostatistical methods are used.
The course is part of Master's Programme in Hydrology, Hydrogeology and Water Resources but can also be read as a separate course.
- Computer Exercises, 5 credits
- Modelling Methods, 4 credits
- Individual Modelling Project, 6 credits
Instruction consists of lectures, seminars, exercises (computer exercises), project work and laboratory work.
After completing the course, the student is expected to be able to:
- perform hydrological and geoscientific calculations using mathematical and numerical methods
- describe different types of models and modeling methods
- independently choose and apply suitable modeling methods for a given problem in hydrology and geosciences
- apply hydrological and geoscientific models and critically discuss model results.
