GIS and Distributed Hydrological Modelling
The course deals with hydrological modelling in a spatial context. Overall goals are to theoretically and practically give the students knowledge about possibilities and problems related to digital geographical data in hydrological modelling, spatially and temporally. Both the scientific/technical aspects as well as societal values of modelling and modelling results are included in the course. The course is given with both theoretical and practical (computer exercises) parts.
The course consists of the following parts:
Digital terrain data, methods for data sampling and data generation.
Model theory, from empirical to process based models.
Model parameters and functions from a spatial perspective in different resolutions.
NOTE: This is an internet based course. You are not supposed to travel to Lund to attend. The course is part of iGEON, the master program in GIS, but it is also possible to study this course outside the program. You can read more about the master program, the admission requirements and other rules and regulations on the homepage of iGEON.
Teaching consists of lectures and practical exercises that you will submit to the teachers. The course ends with a written exam.
