Course - Hydrological Modelling - TVM4106
TVM4106 - Hydrological Modelling
Data and data quality. GIS systems in hydrological applications. Lumped and distributed precipitation - runoff models. Updating and inflow prognosis. Reservoirs and lake models. Modelling of rivers and flood zones. Modelling of ungaged basins and regionalisation. Snow hydrology. Simulation of land use changes.
The student should have knowledge of:
- How hydrological models can be used for planning and operation of power plants, flood simulations and land use changes.
- Theorietical foundation of the models
- What simplifications and approcimations that must be made for practical use
- Which input required, uncertainty and errors in the data, and methods for correction
- Calibration, Uncertainty and evaluation of results.
- Use of GIS in hydrological modelling
Students will be able to:
- Calibrate and use rainfall-runoff models to calculate drainage in a catchment
- Calculating snowmelt with a degree day model and an energy balance model
- Setup and application of a distributed model.
- Prepare and assess the quality of data from different sources
- Link between basic hydrological theory and application of models
- Choose between which problems that may be solved with simplistic models, and which require more complicated models
- Understand how GIS can be used for hydrologic and hydraulic calculations
Learning methods and activities
Lectures and seminars. Exercises and applications of computer models.
- Computer exercises
Further on evaluation
If there is a re-sit examination, the examination form may be changed from written to oral.
Compulsory activities from previous semester may be approved by the department.
