GIS and Distributed Hydrological Modelling


This course can only be taken as part of the iGEON master program. This is an internet based course.

Course contents

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.

Teaching methods

Teaching consists of lectures and practical exercises that you will submit to the teachers. The course ends with a written exam.

This is an internet based course. You are not supposed to travel to Lund to attend.
