Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Course is structured in individual thematic blocks and is designed to give the students fundamentals of meteorology with the emphasis placed on hydrological data, data collection amd measurement and their use in hydrological modeling, postprocesing and visualization in GIS. After completing this course students will be able to understand fundamnetal processes in the atmosphere, explain meteorological and climatological phenomenons as well as understand the problematics of weather forecast and techniques of meteorological data acquisition. The course is focused especially on hydrological data and processes. Student should be able to use GIS and hydrological models in the hydrodynamical and rainfall-runoff modeling.

Summary

Course brings the elementary overview of the hydrometeorology, which is the new and modern discipline within the Earth sciences and plays the strong role in the operative hydrologic forecasting services worldwide. Course deals with the particular processes in atmosphere, climatic phenomenon and their affecting factors including anthropogenic impacts. Basic hydrological principles and concepts are the consequent topics including rainfall-runoff process and possibilities of its mathematical modelling. Hydrological data measurement and data uncertainty follow as the factor playing important role of the modelling praxis. Closer focus on the hydrometeorological data utilization in the hydrologic models and their consequent post processing and visualization in GIS plays the important role. Complex distributed models and expert systems are discussed with practical demonstrations of their role in the operative forecasting.
