Watershed and river network modeling course
- Spatial analysis, watershed hydrology and morphometry in GIS: Advanced topographic and morphometric analyses on digital elevation models (DEMs).
- Watershed as a landscape unit: Geomorphometry, flow characteristics, and land surface parameters (e.g., flow direction, flow accumulation, topographic wetness index, terrain roughness, stream power index).
- River network analysis: Network organization, topological and hierarchical analysis (e.g., stream order, gradient, stream power, sinuosity).
- Geospatial and climate data for hydrology.
- Land use, soil types, geology, Hydrological Response Units (HRU) definition, measurement of climate data (rainfall, temperature) in time and space.
- Spatial interpolation of weather radar, satellite data, and climate reanalysis data.
- Introduction to hydrological modeling:
- Conceptual hydrological models.
- Model calibration, validation, sensitivity, and uncertainty.
- Modeling hydrological responses to climate and landuse changes: Climate models, climate scenarios, land-use changes.
- Linking the land and water systems.: Hillslope-channel and hydrological connectivity (longitudinal, lateral, and vertical dimensions).
- Watershed scale erosion and sediment transport processes: Soil production and erosion. Sheet-rill-gully erosion. Watershed scale erosion and sediment transport models (e.g., USLE, RUSLE, physically based models).
- Introduction to landscape hydro-geomorphic system modeling (e.g., cellular automata models, gridded landscape evolution models).
