Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to apply the following methods: Methods for the calculation and prediction of runoff at river basin scale. Water management systems (rivers, catchments, hydraulic structures) can be better managed, planned and controlled. In the lecture practical problems will be solved by the R-open source software.
