This course deals with advanced topics in hydrology and water resource management and will be organized as a seminar, "Inverted classroom" - type of approach. Topics covered will range from hydrological processes, hydrological measurements techniques, remote sensing of hydrological states and processes, but will mainly focus on advanced mathematical anlaysis and modelling tools.

Based on individual needs of registered MSc and PhD students, a selectionof topics will be thematically grouped, reference literature as well as latest publications will be prepared in advance, presented and discussed in class.

Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

Each student fully participating in the course should gain extensive knowledge on advanced (mathematical) topics relevant to hydrology. He/she should be able to identify knowledge gaps (related to his/her own research activities and projects), to formulate deficit areas and acquire abilities and knowledge to brigde these gaps in a self-organised way.
