Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The course aims to familiarize students with the basics hydrometry, measurement and evaluation of hydrological elements. They demonstrated the basic techniques, such as traditional hydrometric propeller and the modern methods such is ADCP etc. Output knowledge, skills and competence: Students should have a course to control the basic instrumental equipment used in hydrology and Hydrometry. The important part is the Data Interpretation and discussion of uncertainties in the measured hydrological data.
