Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The lecture series provides information on basic and advanced concepts in hydrology and their ecological impact in running water ecology: structure and properties of water, open-channel flows, in-depth discussion of hydraulic stress, organismic drift, sediment transport and the discussion of the hydrological cycle, including basic meteorological concepts. In addition, the students are trained in applied calculation procedures and measuring techniques.
Compulsary for Diploma students at the Departement of Freshwater Ecology and for participants of the Hydrological field course.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam (1 hour) at semester's end; additional terms on negotiation.

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

The participants are aware of the basic concepts of hydrology; they know the most important algorithms and measuring techniques in hydrology and sedimentology. Students have knowledge of the details of the global water cycle and the most important meteorological aspects.

Examination topics

Lectures based on powerpoint and video presentations. Measuring devices are demonstrated and model calculations performed. The most important literature is presented, and handouts are distributed at the lecture's start.
