Components of hydrological balance equation. Possibilities, types of hydrological models. Watershed schematization using GIS. Input data and their preprocessing.. Quantitative prediction of precipitation, atmospheric models. Rainfall-runoff models – types, specifics. Hydraulic models – types, specifics. Models for complex watershed management. Visualization in GIS. Using models for operative hydrology Tools of artificial intelligence in hydrology and water management (fuzzy, neuron network). Hydrogeological models Physical and mathematical modeling, numerical methods – method of finite differences, method of finite elements. Types of hydrogeological models and applications . Modelling groundwater flow in saturated and unsaturated zone – governing equations. Methodology of model construction – conceptual model, grid design, boundary conditions, sources and sinks, initial conditions. Steady stae and transient flow models.
