Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

At the end of the course students should be able to understand basic modeling tools and methods used for water level modeling. They will be able to apply the acquired knowledge to specific watercourses or reservoirs and will be able to discuss the use of modeling in solving water and environmental problems.

Teaching methods



The course introduces students to basic modeling tools and methods for creating a suitable model of water levels, either watercourse or reservoir in landscape. Part of the subject will be concrete application of modeling of real watercourse and reservoir together with flow simulation. The subject further discusses the possibilities of modeling water levels in solving water management and environmental issues.
